Looking for an additional central defender, Philippe Montanier’s Stade Rennais signed Fallou Diagne in the last week of the summer transfer window in 2014. He arrived from FC Metz, and joined a certain Gelson Fernandes, who had arrived a couple of weeks previously, and helped in bringing his former SC Freiburg team-mate to Rennes. After a disappointing first season, he shone in 2015/2016, notably becoming penalty taker. In the end, he had scored 6 goals, and became the most prolific defender in Ligue 1 since Rennes had returned to the top flight. This positive side helped Rennes get a good price for him when he was sold to Werder Bremen in Germany on 8th July 2016.
