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.
“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."
