    Brighton have been accused of overpricing a scotch egg like they did Chelsea star Moises Caicedo.

    The Seagulls pocketed a mammoth £100million up front this week as Caicedo's move to Stamford Bridge was completed, with a further £15m in performance-related add-ons making it a British transfer record fee.

    He's the latest in a long line of mega-money sales to top six Premier League clubs, which also includes Marc Cucurella joining the Blues for £60m, Ben White heading to Arsenal for £50m and Alexis Mac Allister departing for Liverpool at £35m.

    It's not just exiting players that Brighton are good at getting a ton of money for, though, as one of their supporters showed by purchasing a scotch egg for £5.50 in the North Stand of the Amex Stadium.

    They submitted it to popular Twitter account @FootyScran, sharing it with disgusted footy fans far and wide – who all had the same reaction.

    One replied: "£5.50 for a scotch egg is almost as big of a rip-off as £115m for a Moises Caicedo." A second echoed: "Caicedo for £110m is expensive but £5.50 for a scotch egg is taking the absolute p***."

    "£5.50 is the scotch egg equivalent of Moises Caicedo," joked a third, while a fourth commented: "And there I was thinking they were asking too much for Caicedo."

    A fifth argued: "Overpricing players is one thing but £5.50 for an egg in a winter jacket is beyond criminal." And others went for a different humorous approach.

    "After seeing this is it true your chairman is selling Scott Chegg to Chelsea for £75m," asked a sixth, before a seventh similarly quipped: "Can’t wait to sell Scott Chegg to one of the greedy six for another £100m."
