Career[edit]

College and amateur[edit]

Diakhite emigrated to the United States from Senegal, where he attended an academy run by the former Senegal international Salif Diao, to advance his football career. He joined Montverde Academy, a preparatory school in Montverde, Florida, as a junior in 2011. In 2012, he spent a season with Orlando City U-23 of the USL Premier Development League. He played 15 regular-season games, and scored four goals in that time.

Professional[edit]

Diakhite bypassed college, and trialed with Orlando City of USL Pro in the 2013 preseason. He started several matches, including the home leg of a home-and-away friendly series with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

Diakhite was signed by Orlando City on April 4, 2013.[2] He saw his first competitive action on May 14, 2013, when he started in Orlando City's third round match in the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup against Ocala Stampede. He played his first league match on June 9, 2013, against Antigua Barracuda FC.

In July 2013, Diakhite went to Olhanense on trial from Orlando City. On August 1, Diakhite was officially transferred to Olhanense for an undisclosed fee.
