LONDON

Jul 19, 2018-

Brighton and Hove Albion have signed Malian midfielder Yves Bissouma from French club Lille on a five-year contract, the Premier League side has said. The 21-year-old, who has earned 13 caps for his country, made 55 appearances for Lille after making his senior debut for the Ligue 1 side in 2016. “He is someone with good technical ability on the ball, and has good experience at a relatively young age, after playing regularly in a competitive French league for the past two seasons,” Brighton manager Chris Hughton told the club website. Bissouma is Brighton’s sixth signing in the current window. (REUTERS)
