Yves Bissouma

A look at the Malian midfielder's career.

Yves Bissouma signed a five-year contract with the Seagulls in July 2018 from Lille OSC, as he added depth to Albion's options in central midfield.

Bissouma began his senior career with Malian side AS Real Bamako before joining Lille in 2016.

He made a total of 55 appearances and scored four goals in two seasons with the French club, and helped them to retain their Ligue 1 status last season.

The midfielder is also a Mali international, he made his senior debut in 2015 and scored a last-minute winner in the 2016 African Cup of Nations semi-final against Ivory Coast.

The Malian made his Seagulls bow in the 2-0 opening day defeat to Watford in August 2016, and went on to make 28 appearances during his debut season at the club.
