Partick Thistle made their ninth signing of the 2018 summer as Andréa Mbuyi-Mutombo joined the Club.
The Congolese international penned a one-year deal with the Jags having left RNK Split earlier this summer.
The Brussels-born forward started his career as a youth player at Anderlecht in Belgium before moving to FC Brussels and consequently Portsmouth all before signing a senior contract. After signing a pro deal with the Fratton Park side, Andréa made the loan switch to Zulte Waregem where he scored three time in 14 games.
Following his release from Portsmouth, Mbuyi-Mutombo went on to spend time at Standard Liège and Cercle Brugge among other clubs before getting his first taste of Scottish football with Inverness Caley Thistle.
The 28-year old frontman has under 19 caps for his country of birth, Belgium but opted to play for the DR Congo at senior level and has played once for their national side.
Andréa made his debut in the red and yellow at Stair Park against Stranraer. He got a debut goal too as he turned Aidan Fitzpatrick’s cross home from close range to grab the visitors’ third goal of five on the night.
He followed that up with another goal four days later, netting the Jags’ only goal in a 3-1 Betfred Cup round of 16 defeat to Celtic, once again linking up with Aidan Fitzpatrick.
Contract Expires: May 2019
