Stade Rennais[edit]

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[edit]

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).[1] He made his debut for Cardiff City on 14 September 2013, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw against Hull City.[2]


On 18 August 2014, Théophile-Catherine signed for Saint-Étienne on loan until the end of the 2014–15 season with an option to buy.[3]
