Badou began his career with Diambars in his native Senegal before moving to Norwegian side Bodø/Glimt in 2012. After impressing in Norway he joined Turkish Süper Lig side Osmanlıspor in 2015.

Badou was born in Dakar and grew up in Diamalaye as a son of an army officer and science teacher. Ndiaye began studying for a law degree whilst playing for local side Diambars. After a year into his studies he decided to pursue a career in football and went on trials at European clubs.
After a successful trial with Norwegian club Bodø/Glimt he joined them on initially on loan in 2012. Having moved from Senegal to the Arctic Circle, Ndiaye admitted it was a culture shock.—"When I got up on the first day and opened the front door I was terrified. I had never seen snow before, or at least only on TV. Gradually I learned not to care about the weather. If it’s cold, then it’s cold. I have received that attitude from my parents; it’s important to adapt."
He made his debut in a 3–3 draw against Bærum. Before the 2013 season he signed a contract with Bodø/Glimt. He was awarded the Kniksenprisen prize for the best player in the Norwegian First Division 2013 while the team won promotion. Badou became a fan favorite at the Aspmyra Stadion and played every Tippeligaen match in 2014 as Bodø/Glimt successfully avoided relegation.
On 5 August 2015, Badou moved to Turkish side Osmanlıspor, for a reported transfer fee of €300,000. Badou scored 11 goals in 33 appearances in 2015–16, helping Osmanlıspor qualify for the UEFA Europa League. In 2016–17 he played 42 times scoring seven goals as the side finished in 13th position and reached the last 32 of the Europa League losing to Olympiacos.
On 4 August 2017, he moved to league rivals Galatasaray on a four-year contract, for a reported transfer fee of €7.5 million. Badou made 17 appearances in the first half of the 2017–18 season before he began talking to English clubs.
Badou joined English Premier League club Stoke City on 31 January 2018 for a fee of £14 million. Badou scored his first goal in English football on 22 April 2018 in a 1–1 draw against Burnley. Badou played 13 times for Stoke in 2017–18 as they were relegated to the EFL Championship. Badou started the first game of the 2018–19 season, a 3–1 defeat away at Leeds United where he was substituted by Gary Rowett and was heavily criticized by supporters for his performance. after spending the 2018–19 season back at Galatasaray Badou returned to Stoke in the summer of 2019. After failing to secure a move away he was re-introduced into the side by Nathan Jones.
