Christian Tshimanga Kabeya (born 16 June 1987 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo) is a Belgian midfielder.

Kabeya began his playing career with K.S.K. Ronse before he quickly moved to join top flight club Belgian club Excelsior Mouscron. Interest was soon hotting up for the talented youngster, and Aston Villa soon joined the array of interesting parties, trying to capture Kabeya on a scholarship deal. This initially failed, but merely a few months later, out of contract Kabeya opted to sign for Villa. He eventually signed the contract in July 2003.

After an excellent opening season for the academy, Kabeya helped Aston Villa to the final of the 2003/04 FA Youth Cup, despite losing to a much more experienced Middlesbrough team.

On the international front, Kabeya (despite being born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo) has represented Belgium at U16, U17, U18 and U19 level.

He later signed for AGOVV Apeldoorn., but was released in 2009.
