1010 Adama Diomande

Biography

Powerful if somewhat disorganised Norwegian forward Diomande was City’s big money signing in the August 2015 transfer window, but he was signed injured and did not debut until the following December.  He struggled to make an impression in the Championship, but did contribute a few valuable goals as an impact substitute.  At the start of the next season Diomande played an important left sided forward role in City’s Premier League side, but fell out of favour when Marco Silva took over the club.  He had another bit part season in 2017/18, his last for the Tigers, despite an impressive two goal performance early in the season against Bolton.

Born in Oslo to parents hailing from Cote d’Ivoire, Diomande played for an impressive array of monosyllabic sides before he made an impression at Norwegian side Stromgodset and Belarussian side Dinamo Minsk.  He enjoyed a profilic season for Danish side Stabaek before signing for the Tigers.

In May 2018 Adama was released from his contract to head Stateside, signing for Los Angeles FC. He made an immediate positive contribution to the LA side, bagging a goal a game.

Adama is an established Norwegian international, making his senior debut in 2015 when he replaced ex-Tiger Joshua King.
