Born in Paris to Malian parents, the 6ft 2in French midfielder joined Argyle in early October 2017, following the club's troubled start to life back in the third tier.
Diagouraga began his football as a youth with Paris St German before coming to England and to join Watford's academy. Signing a professional contract with the Hornets at the age of 17 in November 2004, he made six appearances and also had loan spells with Swindon (in 2006, 8 appearances), Rotherham (in 2007, 7 appearances) and Hereford (season-long in 2007-08, 50 appearances and 2 goals). He was released from Vicarage Road at the end of 2007-08 season and returned to Hereford on a permanent transfer, going on to make a further 48 appearances and scoring 2 more goals in the following season.
He then moved to Championship side Peterborough on a four-year contract for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £200,000. He made 23 appearances without scoring for the Posh and fell behind others in the pecking order before joining Brentford on loan, which led to a permanent transfer in the summer of 2010. This turned out to be the most productive move of his career as he made 246 appearances (7 goals) over six years, during which he was a key part of the Bees' rise to the Championship. In 2014, whilst at Griffin Park, he also had an eight-game loan spell with Portsmouth.
Despite featuring as an ever-present in league matches in West London during the first half of the 2015–16 season, Diagouraga handed in a transfer request and was linked with a move to Rangers, who were then managed by his former Bees manager Mark Warburton. However, in January 2016 he signed for Championship side Leeds United on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee, playing 20 times and scoring twice before losing his place and joining Ipswich Town in January 2017 for a 12-game loan spell. He returned to Leeds for pre-season but left the club by mutual consent in August, paving the way for his move to Home Park as a free agent in October, after interest from Bristol City, Barnsley and Milton Keynes, and a short trial with Scunthorpe United.
"Toums" had a remarkable spell in green, rapidly becoming a fans' favourite, and was instrumental in Argyle's rise from adrift at the foot of the table to 12th place in less than three months at the club. However, with a Leeds-based family, Diagouraga rejected the offer of a new contract and signed off with a goal in the 3-0 win against Bury in January 2018 before returning north to sign for League One rivals Fleetwood Town, under his old Brentford mentor, Uwe Rosler.
