Player Info

Baye Oumar Niasse was born to a big family in Dakar on April 18, 1990. His first professional team was the local FC Uakam famous for raising Papa Diakate. A pro at 18, Baye made his name known two years later when in 2011 he helped his club claim the Senegalese Champions title: with more than 20 goals to his name he was called the second-best player in the league.

No surprise he soon moved to Europe: in 2013 FC Brann from Norway borrowed him from his parent club. Although Niasse's first European trip was unimpressive, and he returned to Uakam where it took him no time to prove his high level once again. He scored 13 times in just half a season and earned a second try in Europe.

Before Season 2013/14 FC Saint Etienne from France demonstrated interest towards Baye but at the end of the day he found himself in Turkish club Akhisar Belediyespor. He quickly became the coach's regular pick and scored and assisted during his very first appearance, later producing 15 goals and 7 assists in total that season.

In May 2014 Baye debuted at his national team and scored twice against Kosovo.
