Ziaya plays regularly in ES Sétif's first team, and was a fixture in the club's 2006–07 Arab Champions League triumph, scoring a goal against Al-Ittihad in the second round and against Al-Nasr in the group stage. Ziaya scored again in the 2007–08 Arab Champions League versus Al-Wehda in the round of 16.
On 26 December 2009, it was announced that the 25-year-old Algerian striker was going to move on loan from ES Sétif to FC Sochaux with an option to buy. However, 4 days later, it was reported that ES Sétif president refused to loan the player to Sochaux and was negotiating with Saudi Arabian club Ittihad Jeddah.
On 6 January 2010, Ziaya signed a two-year contract with Saudi Arabian Ittihad Jeddah, with the club paying €2 million for the transfer. He scored two goals in his first game for the club, a 4-1 win in a friendly against Al-Ettifaq. On 23 February 2010, Ziaya made his official debut for Al-Ittihad in an AFC Champions League match against FC Bunyodkor in Uzbekistan, with the score ending 3-0 in favour of the home side. He scored his first official goal for the club on 8 March 2010 in an AFC Champions League match Zob Ahan. Ziaya scored the goal in the 16th minute of the game, with the game ending 2-2. In his first league game for Ittihad, on 14 March against Al-Ahli, he delivered an assist to Manaf Abushgeer for the only goal of the game. Despite achieving only 1 championship with the team in 2 years, he is considered to be one of Ittihad's greatest strikers recently and has expressed his urge to rejoin Saudi Arabia.
