The Senegal international joined The Addicks in the summer of 2006 and appeared 23 times in the top flight, but could not prevent his team from being relegated.

The 28-year-old handed in a transfer request in order not to play in The Championship and was allowed to join Ligue 1 title contenders Bordeaux.

"Of course I want to play Premier League football again, I hope I will return pretty soon," Diawara told setantasports.com.

"It took me time to adapt and to understand their football, but when I learnt it I started to have a lot of fun.

"Charlton had a good team and if we had not been disturbed by non-sporting issues, I think we could have avoided the drop. That is life. I do not regret at all this very interesting experience and I want to return."
