Brighton have completed the £4.5million signing of Ecuador midfielder Moises Caicedo
The south coast club have fended off competition from Manchester United and Chelsea to complete the capture of this highly-rated midfielder.
Seagulls head coach Graham Potter told his club’s website: ‘It’s no secret we have been working to bring Moises to the club and we are very pleased he is finally here.
‘He will need time to settle in with the group, for us to get to know him and vice versa, as well as get up to speed and ready for the demands of the Premier League.
‘He has done very well in Ecuador and made his debut for his country just 18. He’s an exciting signing, but it is important we give him time to adjust.’
