Football career

Born in Créteil, Diamé began his professional career in 2003 with RC Lens, but left three years later after facing health problems.[1]After a full recovery, he signed for lowly Spanish side CD Linares in 2007, and moved to Rayo Vallecano the following year,[2]helping the Madrid-based team to a mid-table position in the Segunda División, after being promoted in the 2007–08 season. During his time with Rayo it was reported that Spanish topflight giants Real Madrid and FC Barcelona were interested in signing the midfielder,[3]as well as Premier League side Arsenal.[4]

In early August 2009, Diamé arranged a deal with Premier League side Wigan Athletic, with the English club paying 3.8 million to Rayo, in a deal which also involved defender Antonio Amaya.[5] However, in the following week, the transfer was put on hold, as alleged heart problems were found.[6] On 21 August, the deal was completed,[7]and he made his debut a day later in a 5–0 defeat to Manchester United.[8] He scored his first goal for Wigan against Sunderland on the 6 February 2010.[9]
