Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Mali international midfielder Yves Bissouma from Brighton & Hove Albion ahead of the Premier League 2022-23 season.

Antonio Conte has successfully returned the Spurs back to Champions League football and they would need all hands on deck.

Recall that Tottenham had completed the signing of Croatian winger Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

According to the club's website, "We are delighted to announce the transfer of Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion, subject to the granting of a work permit.

The Mali International has agreed a deal that will run until 2026.

A dynamic midfielder, Yves began his youth career at Majestic SC before joining Malian outfit AS Real Bamako and in March, 2016, headed to France to join Lille OSC, making 55 senior appearances for Les Dogues, scoring four goals.

In July, 2018, he signed for Brighton, making his debut the following month and registering his first league goal in July, 2020, a strike which was nominated for the Premier League’s Goal of the Month award.

Across four seasons with the Seagulls, Yves made 123 appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals and in the 2021/22 season helped them to ninth place in the Premier League, the highest top-flight finish in the club’s history.

On the international stage, he has made 23 appearances to date, scoring on three occasions since making his senior debut in October, 2015. The following year, he represented Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations, netting the decisive goal to seal his team’s place in the final, where they would eventually finish as runners-up. Yves was again called up by Mali ahead of the rescheduled Africa Cup of Nations which took place earlier this year.
