Famara Diédhiou (born 15 December 1992) is a Senegalese footballer who currently plays for English Football League Championship side Bristol City, and the Senegal national team as a striker.[2]

Club career[edit]

Sochaux[edit]

Diédhiou joined FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in 2014 from Gazélec Ajaccio. He made his Ligue 2 debut at 2 August 2014 against US Orléans playing the full game in a 0–1 home defeat on the opening day of the 2014–2015 season.[3] On 22 August 2014, he scored his first Ligue 2 goal against AC Arles-Avignon.[4]

Clermont (loan)[edit]

On 2 February 2015, Diédhiou joined Clermont Foot on loan from Sochaux.[5] For the 2015–16 Ligue 2 season, he went back on loan to Clermont again.[6] In that season, he scored 22 goals in 37 matches.[7][8]

Angers[edit]

In summer 2016, he moved up a tier joining Ligue 1 club Angers SCO who paid Sochaux a transfer fee of £1.36 million.[7] In 2016–17, his only season at the club, he played 35 times scoring 9 goals.[7]

Bristol City[edit]

On 28 June 2017, Diédhiou signed a four-year contract with English Championship club Bristol City for a club record transfer fee of £5.3 million.[7][8] He scored on his debut for Bristol City in a 3–1 win over Barnsley on 5 August 2017.[9] During the 2017–18 season Bristol City reached the semi finals of the EFL Cup,[10] with Diédhiou scoring in the 2—0 upset against Premier League opponents Stoke City in the third round.[11]

In his first season at the club scoring 14 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions, finishing the club's 2nd top scorer behind Bobby Reid for Bristol City.[12] In May 2018 he received a six-match ban due to a spitting incident in a match against Birmingham City in April 2018.[13] Diédhiou denied the charges, leading the club to appeal the ban on 21 June 2018.[14] Bristol City appealed the 6 match ban, however the decision was upheld on 14 July 2018, meaning Diédhiou was suspended for the opening six matches of the 2018–19 season.[15]

He scored 13 goals in the league for the second consecutive seasons during the 2018/19 campaign, and finished as Bristol City's top scorer with 13 goals in all competitions.[16]

International career[edit]

Diédhiou scored his first goal for Senegal in a 2–0 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualification win over Namibia.[17] His second international goal came in a friendly vs Brazil, scoring a penalty after Sadio Mane was fouled in the penalty area.
