Moises Caicedo Has Completed His Move To Brighton

Brighton have signed Ecuador international midfielder Moises Caicedo for £4.5m on a deal until June 2025.

 The 19-year-old, who arrives from Ecuadorian side Independiente del Valle, was previously scouted by Manchester United and was linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last few weeks.

Brighton boss Graham Potter has said that “,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.”

Brighton also signed striker Billy Arce from Independiente del Valle in August 2018.

“Moises has had a lot of interest from clubs across Europe, which is understandable given how well he has done,” Brighton’s technical director Dan Ashworth added.

“He’s been one the recruitment team has been aware of for some time and we are confident he is a player with a very exciting future ahead.

In October, Caicedo became the first player born in the 21st century to ever score in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying with a goal in Ecuador’s 4-2 win over Uruguay, earning four caps in total to date
