Kévin Théophile-Catherine (born 28 October 1989) is a French footballer who plays as a defender for Croatian First Football League team Dinamo Zagreb.


Stade Rennais

Théophile-Catherine spent more than six seasons with Rennes, playing a key role as they won the French Under-18 Cup in 2007 and the National Under-19 trophy a year later.

He made his first team debut against Le Mans in the League Cup and made his first French League appearance in a goalless draw against Lille, both during 2009, while he signed a first professional contract in the same year.

Théophile-Catherine made almost 100 first team appearances for Rennes amassing more than 60 of those between the 2011–12 and 2012–13 seasons.

Cardiff City

Théophile-Catherine signed for Cardiff City on a four-year deal on 31 August 2013 for a reported fee of €2.4 million (£2.1 million). He made his debut for Cardiff City on 14 September 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw against Hull City.


On 18 August 2014, Théophile-Catherine returned to Ligue 1 when he signed for Saint-Étienne on loan until the end of the 2014–15 season with an option to buy. On 15 June 2015, Saint-Étienne made the deal permanent for three years, for a fee believed to be in the region of €2 million (£1.45 million). Over his four years at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard, Théophile-Catherine played 142 games. He scored once, on 2 April 2016 in a 2–0 win at Gazélec Ajaccio. On 24 September 2017, against his former club Rennes, Théophile-Catherine injured Ismaïla Sarr, and faced a hearing by the Ligue de Football Professionnel for his foul. As he received a yellow card for it in the match, the LFP therefore had no power to issue a suspension.

Dinamo Zagreb

In June 2018, Théophile-Catherine moved to Dinamo Zagreb on a three-year deal. He debuted in the Croatian First Football League on 17 August and scored in a 2–1 home win over Osijek. On 4 October, he was sent off at the end of a 2–0 win at Anderlecht in the UEFA Europa League group stage.
