Biography

Born in the former Republic of Zaire, Patrick moved as a refugee to the Netherlands at the age of 4. He made his professional debut at the age of eighteen for FC Eindhoven having played throughout their youth academy, and remained there for four seasons, scoring 20 goals. In 2014, he moved to Eerste Division rivals Fortuna Sittard for two seasons where despite Fortuna holding up the bottom of the league, he notched 28 goals over both campaigns.

At the end of his Fortuna contract, Patrick left the Netherlands for Romania and played there for two seasons, for Petrolul then Rapid Bucharest. A return to the Netherlands saw him spend one season with Eerste Division contenders MVV Maastricht in 2016-17, where he helped them reach the Eredivise promotion playoffs.

A bizarre twist during the 2017-18 pre-season saw Patrick announced as having signed for Thai club Sukhothai, however, days later it emerged that he had signed a one year deal at United following a recommendation from former Terrors favourite Freddy van der Hoorn. N'Koyi's time with United was short lived, however, having mostly been involved as a substitute and scoring a handful of goals in the Irn Bru Cup. The striker left the club in December 2017.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Patrick was born on this date in Kinshasa, Zaire.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Born in the former Republic of Zaire, Patrick moved as a refugee to the Netherlands at the age of 4. He made his professional debut at the age of eighteen for FC Eindhoven having played throughout their youth academy, and remained there for four seasons, scoring 20 goals. In 2014, he moved to Eerste Division rivals Fortuna Sittard for two seasons where despite Fortuna holding up the bottom of the league, he notched 28 goals over both campaigns.

  • United commenced their 2017/18 campaign with a home game in the Betfred Cup against Raith Rovers. The team contained six players making their debuts for United, with four further new players on the bench. Indeed, of the starting eleven only William Edjenguele and Mark Durnan started Dundee United’s previous competitive fixture in Hamilton only seven weeks earlier.

  • United began their defence of the Irn Bru Challenge Cup with an ultimately comfortable win over Cowdenbeath. Ray McKinnon took the opportunity to completely overhaul the starting line-up. Only James Keatings kept his place in the team from the previous Saturday’s league win over Queen of the South. Youth players Harvey Dailly, Logan Chalmers and Graham Taylor, along with recent signing Paul Quinn, all made their first starts for the club.

  • Two goals in stoppage time saw Dundee United progress into the last 16 of the Irn Bru Cup with a lacklustre 3-1 win over Alloa Athletic.

  • Last Appearance - Morton 0 - 2 Dundee United

    United continued their unbeaten league run under Csaba Laszlo and retained their place at the top of the Championship with a 2-0 win over Morton on a bitterly cold afternoon at Cappielow. A brace from Billy King, his first league goals of the season, saw United emerge triumphant over the side they beat in the first round of last season’s play offs.
