Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the signing of French right-back Romaric Yapi from Paris Saint-Germain on undisclosed terms.

The 19-year-old defender has signed a one-year deal, with a one-year extension option for the club, and he will initially link up with Simon Rusk’s under-23 squad.

Rusk said: “We are pleased to have completed the signing and are delighted to welcome Romaric to the club.

“He is another player the club has been aware of for a period of time. He is a versatile player and is comfortable at right-back, on
the right wing or as a wing back.

“He is a talented player who has great potential and I look forward to working with him.”

Yapi began his career in the French capital with PSG and over the past two seasons has made nine appearances in the UEFA Youth League.

The transfer window closes at 5pm today (Thursday 8 August) with Albion still thought to be keen to add to their ranks.

One player said to be on their radar is Huddersfield Town’s Australian international midfielder Aaron Mooy.
