Chris Hughton has indicated Yves Bissouma is exceeding his expectations after netting his first goal for the club at Bournemouth.
The Seagulls spent big to bring in the Mali international from Lille during the summer and are starting to see more and more glimpses of promise from the £17million signing, who has featured 18 times in all competitions this season.

The 22-year-old started the FA Cup third round win at Bournemouth on Saturday, netting from long range at the Vitality Stadium as Hughton’s men set up a fourth-round encounter with West Brom.
Hughton is excited by the potential Bissouma has shown and believes he will continue to blossom at Brighton, with his language skills one area the Brighton boss is keen to see improved upon.
Hughton told The Argus: “He is still learning. He is a wonderful talent, probably one of the most talented players that we’ve had here.
“But it’s just about nurturing that one. He is still young, he is still learning the language and he will get better. “I hope so. The game, particularly in the position he plays, is about a lot of aspects and you have got to do enough of those aspects well.
“At the moment he is still developing. I think once he gets a good grasp of the language he’ll improve.”
Hughton is likely to revert back to his strongest line-up for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool after making eight changes for the win at Bournemouth but could keep faith with Bissouma after his strong showing.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
