Yannick Yenga (born April 10, 1985 in Kinshasa) is a Congolese football striker.


Yenga started his career with Le Mans Union Club 72, but made only two first-team appearance for the club before joining SO Châtellerault in 2005. After scoring 11 goals in the Championnat National, he was signed by Ligue 2 side Dijon FCO. Yenga spent two seasons with Dijon but failed to properly break into the first-team, making just 15 league starts for the club. He subsequently returned to the National with Paris FC and scored 11 times during the 2008–09 season. This led to a move back to Ligue 2 when he signed for FC Tours on 16 June 2009.

However, Yenga again failed to make an impact at the higher level, scoring only two goals in 28 league appearances. In the transfer window of January 2011, he transferred to RC Strasbourg until the end of the 2010–11 season. He left the club in the summer of the same year following their demotion by the DNCG to the Championnat de France amateur 2, the fifth tier of French football. Yenga then returned to Paris FC for the start of the 2011–12 campaign, and scored the first hat-trick of his senior career in the side's 6–0 win against SAS Épinal on 12 October 2011.
