Brighton Hove & Albion have beaten Manchester United to the signing of Ecuadorian midfielder Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuadorian midfielder was strongly linked with a move to United last month, but it is the Seagulls who have finally landed the player from Independiente Del Valle.

The young midfielder has signed a contract at the Amex Stadium until June 2025.

The 19-year-old midfielder will now aim to impress at Brighton, who are sitting in 17th position in the Premier League table.
