Moises Caicedo

Moises Caicedo signed for Albion on deadline day of the 2020/21 winter transfer window from Independiente del Valle, putting pen-to-paper on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Caicedo came through the youth ranks at Ecuadorian top-flight side Independiente before making his first appearance for the club in October 2019.

A year later he made his first senior appearance for his country in a 1-0 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification defeat against Argentina.

Just four days later he scored his first international goal in a 4-2 win over Uruguay, in turn becoming the first player born in the 21st century to score in a CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier. He now has four caps to his name.

The 20-year-old midfielder arrived on the south coast having also won the 2020 Under-20 Copa Libertadores with Independiente.

He made his first start from Albion in a Carabao Cup second round match at Cardiff City in August 2021, impressing in central midfield as a young Albion team defeated the Bluebirds 2-0.

Caicedo then joined Beerschot on loan for the first half of the 2021/22 campaign, before being recalled for the second part of the season.

He made his Premier League debut in a 2-1 win over Arsenal in April 2022, impressing as he helped Albion end a run of eight matches without victory.
