The 10 highest-paid stars at Brighton

English Premier League

Brighton and Hove Albion are aiming to secure their fifth consecutive season in the Premier League and as their impressive brand and status grow, so does their wage bill.

When Tony Bloom assumed the role as chairman and owner of Brighton in 2009, the club has risen from the third-tier towards the cusp of fully establishing themselves as Premier League outfit.

The vision under the ambitious ownership has been clear since the arrival of Graham Potter by signing some of the most promising talents around the world towards the aim of a top-ten club in England.

With the deep investment from Bloom, the likes of Adam Lallana and Danny Welbeck have been enticed to the South Coast with extensive experience at the highest level.

The duo combined sets the Seagulls back a staggering £140,385-a-week before tax which equates to an estimated (R2.9m) - displaying the incredible riches on offer as a Premier League footballer.

Percy Tau signed for on 20 July 2018 from Mamelodi Sundowns for a club-record sale of £2.7m (R50m) and is said to be on par with the likes of Belgium and Argentina internationals Leonardo Trossard and Alexis MacAlister in terms of wages.

The Bafana Bafana star is reported to have signed a four-year deal worth £30,000-a-week (R613k) three and a half years ago and after finally securing his work-permit last month - he's now determined to offer a return of investment.

Brighton are set to face reigning champions, Liverpool on Wednesday evening at the Anfield (22h00).
