Barcelona has signed teenager Moussa Wague after impressing with Senegal at the World Cup.

Barcelona says it paid Belgian club Eupen 5 million euros ($5.8 million) for the 19-year-old fullback. Wague signed a five-year contract, which includes a 100 million euro ($115.8 million) release clause.

Wague played in all three of Senegal's matches at the World Cup in Russia and became the youngest African scorer in tournament history when he netted in the 2-2 draw against Japan.

Wague will initially join Barcelona's B team.
