Sekou Baradji (born 24 April 1984) is a French professional footballer. A midfielder, he plays for FC Istres. He also holds Senegalese citizenship.
Career in England
Baradji signed for West Ham United on the transfer deadline, 31 August 2005. He was immediately loaned to Reading. He had been on trial with Derby; Burnley tried to offer him a contract before West Ham signed the midfielder. He only made three appearances for the Royals, twice in the Football League Cup and once in the league, a substitute appearance against Sheffield United in which Baradji's free kick allowed Brynjar Gunnarsson to score the winner in a pivotal first-against-second match. Reading did not extend Baradji's loan and West Ham later released him.
In 2010 Baradji was on trial with Premier League club Wigan Athletic and played in their pre-season friendly draw with Oldham Athletic. He also travelled to Austria with the team and played in their 4–1 victory over NK Rudar on 26 July 2010.
