Hereford United have completed the permanent signing of Watford youngster Toumani Diagouraga.
The 21-year-old spent virtually the whole of last season with the League Two outfit, making 41 league starts in the process.
Diagouraga will now have the chance to play at a higher level next term following the side's elevation to League One.
The youngster clearly enjoyed his time at Edgar Street after penning a three-year deal with The Bulls.
Hereford were always in prime position to land Diagouraga after being given the first option on his services as part of the deal that took Lionel Ainsworth to Watford.
