Jordan Diakiese – a former PSG academy star – has tragically died at the age of just 24. The cause of the death is not yet known but was confirmed by his current club AS Furiani Agliani.
The shocking news came from them who currently play in the amateur leagues in France.

Their statement added that everyone at the club had been ‘affected badly’ by the tragedy, and that ‘all their thoughts go out to his family’.
Tributes have since poured in for the youngster with the cause of his death not known at this time.
PSG paid tribute to their former academy product on social media after the news broke.
