It’s a nice nod to Toulouse and, more broadly, to Upper Garonne. Wednesday August 10, 2022, the former pitchoun Issa Diop left West Ham to join another London club: Fulham. And in his new colors, the native of the Pink City has chosen to wear the number… 31 !
He had left Toulouse for a record sum
Arrived in 2018 at West Ham, after a record transfer for the FC Toulouse (25 million euros), Issa Diop will breathe new life into his career by joining the promoted Londoner.
His arrival across the Channel, the young central defender (25) participated in 94 Premier League games. But last season, the one who wore the TFC captain’s armband at just 21 years old was most often relegated to the bench (25 games in all competitions, including only 12 in the league).
At Fulham, Issa Diop therefore hopes to find playing time. And he is looking forward, as he named it for the English club’s website: “I just want to train with the team now, and we will at work “.
