With Brighton and Hove Albion confirming the capture of former Lille midfielder and Mali international Yves Bissouma yesterday evening, fans were quick to comment on social media.

The 21-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year deal and he’ll remain with Brighton until the summer of 2023 and whilst some of us in the fanbase might not have much of a clue about the kind of player we have signed, plenty of others have seen him in action and they are raving about his qualities.

He becomes the six signing of the summer for manager Chris Hughton and now we see how quickly he can settle at the Amex Training Centre and adjust to the English game and his new colleagues, but optimism is certainly high as we go into our second straight year in the Premier League.

Fans were quick to come forward with their delight at the deal on Twitter last night and here are some of the best comments.
