Issiar Dia (born 8 June 1987) is a French-born Senegalese footballer who currently plays for French club Nancy.

Career[edit]

AS Nancy[edit]

In summer 2006, Dia joined AS Nancy from SC Amiens for a €2 million transfer fee. On 10 September 2006, he made his Ligue 1 debut in a match against Toulouse FC replacing Monsef Zerka in the 68th minute. 18 days later, he scored on his international debut in a 3–1 return leg win against tournament favourites FC Schalke 04 in the first round of the UEFA Cup; he was involved in all three goals.

In his first spell at AS Nancy, he made a total of 115 league appearances scoring 13 goals with 8 of those coming in his last season at the club.

Fenerbahçe[edit]

On 21 July 2010, Fenerbahçe announced that Dia had joined the team on a four-year contract for a sum of €6.5 million.[1] He ended a long scoring drought on 5 February 2011 with a goal against Manisaspor, as Fenerbahçe won 3–1 in the dying minutes of the game. After a two-year spell with the Turkish club, he joined Qatari champions Lekhwiya SC.[2]

Lekhwiya[edit]

Nancy[edit]

On 31 August 2016, Dia returned to Nancy on a one-year deal.[3]

International career[edit]

He is often deployed on the right side of the attack and quickly earned a call up to the France U-21 squad, the country of his birth. Despite this, after his 21st birthday, Dia chose to pledge his future to the Senegalese. He was selected for the squad the first time possible, against Gambia, and came on as a substitute in the 61st minute for Frederic Mendy.
