Brighton are closing on the £4.5million signing of coveted Ecuador international Moises Caicedo after having an offer accepted.

Caicedo was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but the Old Trafford club opted not to make an offer. Chelsea also made enquiries, which was a move understood to be favoured by Caicedo, while West Ham, Everton and Newcastle also opened discussions over a deal.

However, Brighton are the club who pushed to reach an agreement and hope to have the deal finalised this week.
