The left footer joined the Corsican outfit in the summer of 2017 after a spending two seasons with Guingamp, where he struck 12 times in 49 outings for the French side.

At international level, he has represented both Mali Under-20s and Under-23s. In 2016, he was part of the Under-23s squad that travelled to the Toulon tournament – eventually won by England.
Diabaté made his debut for the Foxes in their 5-1 triumph over Peterborough United in the Emirates FA Cup, scoring two goals in the process, before another 16 appearances in all competitions in 2017/18.
