Moisés Caicedo joins Brighton

Tue 02 February 2021 | 19:44

Brighton have confirmed the signing of Moises Caicedo on a contract that runs to 2025 from Independiente del Valle.

Seemingly, Manchester United were keen on wraping up a €6 million (£5m/$7m) January contract for Caicedo, although Independiente announced that they didn't make an offer. 

The 19-year-old played 31 matches in all competitions and was given his debut for the national team last October.

“It's no secret we have been working to bring Moises to the club, and we are very pleased he is finally here,"

Seagulls coach, Graham Potter announced.

“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 at just 18. He's an exciting signing, but it is important we give him time to adjust.”

Technical director, Dan Ashworth is convinced that he can shine with his potential in the Premier League.

“Moises has had a lot of interest from clubs across Europe, which is understandable given how well he has done,"

he 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. 

“It has been a complicated transfer, due to the current restrictions, and there has been a lot of hard work across several of the club's departments to get the transfer completed.

“Moises is still a young player, moving away from his country for the first time, so we allow him the time he needs to adjust and adapt.”
