Momo Diaby joins Owls on loan

11 August 2023

The Owls have made our ninth signing of the summer in the shape of Frenchman Momo Diaby.

The towering midfielder joins Wednesday on a season-long loan from Portuguese Primeira side Portimonense SC.

Diaby has spent his professional career to date in Portugal, including four seasons at Pacos Ferreira and more recently Portimonense SC, whom he joined in the summer of 2022.


The 26-year-old links up with a familiar face at Hillsborough having played at Pacos Ferreira with fellow new Owls recruit Jaun Delgado.

Diaby told “I know Juan, I have played with him before. Before I came I spoke with him and he told me great things about the club.

“I am very happy and I hope we have a good season. I am here to help the team.


“As soon as I heard, it was clear I wanted to come to Sheffield Wednesday and I am very happy because I will finally play in England, it has always been a dream.

“I can’t wait, I have heard a lot of good things about the fans and I want to tell them that me and the rest of the team will do our best to make them happy.”

Diaby has been allocated shirt number 44 for the duration of his S6 stay.
