On 28 July 2017, Diaby agreed to a one-year loan deal with Girona FC, being immediately assigned to the reserves in the third division.[4] He made his first team debut on 28 November, replacing Carles Planas in a 1–1 away draw against Levante UD, for the season's Copa del Rey.[5]

On 5 July 2019, Diaby signed for Barnsley on a four-year contract.[6][7]
