After progressing through the youth ranks at various French amateur sides, and completing an economics degree, Guedioura joined third tier club L'Entente SSG. He moved onto fellow third tier side US Créteil-Lusitanos after the season ended, where he scored 6 times in 24 appearances.
He moved into Belgium football in Summer 2008, joining newly-promoted Jupiler League side Kortrijk in a two-year deal. Guedioura spent just a half a season at the club before moving to RSC Charleroi in January 2009 on a year-and-a-half contract.
In January 2010 he moved on loan to English Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers for the remainder of the 2009–10 campaign, with an option of a permanent deal and he made his Wolves debut on 26 January as a substitute in a goalless draw against Liverpool, soon becoming a regular starter. He scored his first Wolves goal in the final game of the season to earn a victory over Sunderland, after which it was confirmed that he had duly been signed on a three year contract.
He has been named in the preliminary squad for Algeria's 2010 World Cup campaign.
