After starring for Ivory Coast at the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship, Keita, alongside countryman Félix Dja Ettien, was bought by Spanish club Levante UD. The pair struggled mightily during their first months in the new reality, with Keita eventually failing to settle altogether and leaving in January 1999 for La Liga team Real Oviedo, being irregularly used during his stay and starting in 37 of his 48 games in the top division (the Asturians would be relegated in his third season).
