Yves Bissouma delighted with his move to Brighton

Yves Bissouma is delighted with his move to Brighton.

The former Lille midfielder joined the Seagulls.

Bissouma said: “I chatted with quite a lot of people who advised me it's a good league for my progression, and it's good to join a club like Brighton who know what they want, an ambitious club.

“First of all I spoke to my agent, then I spoke to Bakary Sako who plays at Crystal Palace and Molla Wague, who plays for Watford. They both said a lot of good things about the Premier League.

“It's the dream of every player to come and play in the Premier League. They said it's different to Ligue 1 – but you see that on the TV.

“They said it's quite physical, quite difficult but it's the best league in the world, that says it all.

“To be a big player you have to prove yourself in the big leagues and that is what pushed me a bit to come here.

“I wanted to come and show what I can do in the Premier League and help the team move forward."
