Club career

Born in Conakry, Zayatte moved from Guinea to Paris, France at the age of fifteen.[2] His first professional club was RC Lens, where he got to know future Hull City team-mate Daniel Cousin.[2] He only played in two games for Lens, one league and one cup, and moved to BSC Young Boys for more first-team opportunities.[2]
In summer 2008, Zayatte had trials with Everton and Newcastle United,[3] before joining Hull City on a season-long loan on 31 August.[4] City had the option to sign him longer-term if they stayed in the Premier League.[2] A deal made the transfer permanent for a fee that matched the club's then-record signing (£2.5 million for Anthony Gardner).[5]
On 25 October 2008, Zayatte scored his first goal for Hull in a 3–0 win against West Bromwich Albion early in the second half, a volley from Dean Marney's right hand corner to maintain Hull's impressive start to the 2008–09 campaign.[6]
On 23 January 2009, it was announced that Zayatte had signed permanently with Hull, on a reported three-year deal.[7]
On 9 September 2010, it was confirmed that Zayatte had signed for Leicester City on a season-long loan with an optional view of a permanent deal, after Leicester's attempt to sign Zayatte failed after transfer deadline shutdown, which meant they couldn't complete a permanent deal.[8] However on 15 September, Leicester pulled out of the deal after problems with the player's medical.[9]
On 18 January 2011, Zayatte was allowed to return to France on compassionate grounds, with Hull City retaining his playing registration in order to control any future compensation issues.[10] On 24 January 2011 it was announced that he had signed a contract with Turkish club Konyaspor.[11]
On 27 May 2011, Zayatte signed a three-year contract with İstanbul BB.

Sheffield Wednesday

On 2 August 2013, Zayatte signed a two-year deal with Sheffield Wednesday subject to FIFA clearance.[12] He scored his first goal for the club in 17 August 2013 derby against Leeds United, which finished 1–1.[13]
