Keïta started his career in Mali with local side Djoliba AC. After just one season with the senior team, he joined Emirati club Al-Jazira, where he stayed for just one season before leaving the club. In the summer of 2005 he joined Algerian club ES Sétif and instantly had an impact. In his first season, he was a main stay in the team starting line-up and helped the team finish fourth in the standings and earn a spot in next year's edition of the Arab Champions League. The 2006–2007 season would be his most successful to date, helping ES Sétif win the Algerian League and the Arab Champions League.
After winning the 2007 Arab Champions League, he signed a contract with Qatari club Al-Arabi. However, just days later, he signed another contract with Ligue 2 side AC Ajaccio and chose to join them instead. After playing 4 games for AC Ajaccio, Al-Arabi pleaded their case to FIFA to regain the player and FIFA ruled in their favour, forcing the player to join Al-Arabi.
