Moussa Wague has put pen to paper on a five-year deal at the Camp Nou.

The Senegalese full-back has completed the move to Barcelona from KAS Eupen in a deal worth around €5m.

He has signed a five-year deal at the Camp Nou till 2023.

Barcelona have set the 19-year old left-back release clause at €100m and plan to deploy his services in the Barca B team.

Wague will also be in contention for a place in the senior team, behind Sergi Roberto and Nelson Semedo in the pecking order.

The idea is to slowly integrate Wague into the first-team where he will serve as backup to Nelson Semedo in the right-back position while Roberto returns to his preferred central midfield position.
