Moises Caicedo, the 19-year-old Ecuadorian midfielder who is one of the brightest young soccer stars the nation has seen in recent years, is headed to the Premier League to play for Brighton and Hove Albion FC according to TyC’s Cesar Luis Merlo.

Atlanta United was reportedly in the running to sign the teenage sensation after he featured four times for the Ecuadorian senior national team in 2020 on top of a superb season for his club Independiente del Valle. Caicedo was also linked with Manchester United, who had reportedly submitted £4.5 million bid. The accepted bid from Brighton is still yet to be reported.
