Brighton have completed the signing of French defender Romaric Yapi from Paris St Germain for an undisclosed fee.
The versatile 19-year-old has signed a one-year deal at the Amex Stadium, with Albion holding the option for a second.
Yapi will initially link up with the Premier League club's under-23 squad.
Seagulls under-23 boss Simon Rusk said in a club statement: "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."
