Jacques Faty (born 25 February 1984 in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, Val-de-Marne) is a French-born Senegalese footballer who plays for Chinese Super League club Wuhan Zall and Senegal national football team.
Faty has been a Rennes player since 1999, although he only signed professional terms in 2002. He became an integral part of the 2003–04 Rennes team which historically achieved qualification to the UEFA Cup.
Faty started to lose his place in the team following the arrival of Ghanaian John Mensah early in 2006. The departure of coach László Bölöni to manage AS Monaco did not help his claim either. Pierre Dréossi came in to fill in the vacant coach's position and used Grégory Bourillon and Mensah as the main central defence partnership for the 2006–07 season.
Faty became more and more unsettled as the season went on, and in October 2006 his patience run out. Faty announced his desire to leave the club when his contract expires in June 2007.
A knee injury to Mensah gave him a run in the side, and to his credit, he put in some decent performances. The Rennes management tried to keep him at the club by giving him an extension to his contract, but he declined and opted to join Marseille and enjoy a new experience at "France's top club" as he said when he signed his contract.
Faty is an accomplished player in the youth level of international football.
In 2001, he captained France's FIFA U-17 World Championship squad to a first-place finish. Faty was a regular starter of the French U-21 international squad. He took part in the 2006 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship held in Portugal where the French finished as losing semi-finalists. He is no longer available for selection after exceeding the age limit.
Faty made his international debut for Senegal national football team on 26 August 2009.
