The south coast club have fended off competition from Manchester United and Chelsea to complete the £4.5million capture of this highly-rated midfielder. 

Seagulls head coach Graham Potter told the club’s official website: ‘It’s no secret we have been working to bring Moises to the club and we are very pleased he is finally here.

‘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 just 18. He’s an exciting signing, but it is important we give him time to adjust.’ 

The 19-year-old arrives on the south coast having won the 2020 Under 20 Copa Libertadores
