Malik signed for Adelaide United's youth squad at the commencement of the A-League 2008–09 season. Prior to this he had been plying his trade for local clubs Croydon Kings and Adelaide Raiders where he made his senior debut at the age of 17. In early 2008, Malik spent two weeks on trial at Italian club Torino.
Adelaide United manager Aurelio Vidmar called up Osama to the first team squad as a replacement for injured striker Paul Agostino for the FIFA Club World Cup. There, Malik made his professional debut on 14 December 2008 in the match against Gamba Osaka, replacing Cristiano in the 77th minute.
For the 2011–12 season, Malik signed with Adelaide United and manager Rini Coolen. However, on 17 May 2011 Adelaide United approached North Queensland Fury asking for an early release, which was granted, allowing Malik to play for Adelaide United for the remainder of the 2010–11 Season.
Malik was signed by Melbourne City in January 2016.
