Wolverhampton Wanderers have been beaten to the signing of Paris Saint German youngster Moussa Sissako by Premier League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion, according to reports coming out of France.
RMC, a popular French radio station, have reported that the 17-year-old defender is set to sign a four year deal at the Seagulls in the coming days.
Sissako had been linked with a move to both Brighton and Wolves in the past month, with reports suggesting that both teams were set to offer him a contract, but it appears that the South Coast club have won in pursuit of him.
The central defender was so highly rated in the French capital that Paris Saint Germain even offered him a professional deal, but the top flight of England has been enough to tempt him away from the Parc des Princes.
He never featured for the PSG first team, and with the likes of Marquinhos, Joshua Kimpembe and Thiago Silva ahead of him, it was unlikely that he would anytime soon.
Instead, he played in the youth Champions League for the French champions, playing against the likes of Celtic and Barcelona.
That being said, he will arrive at Brighton as one for the future, and it is hard to see him making his way straight into the first team.
Brighton & Hove Albion’s first season ever in the Premier League was a huge success for Chris Hughton’s side, as he guided them to 15th place in the top flight. There were some memorable victories along the way, including beating Manchester United and Arsenal at home.
