Brighton slammed Crystal Palace over their bid for Liam Bridcutt and Leonardo Ulloa yesterday.

The Daily Star says Brighton sources referred to Palace's late attempt to sign the players as 'derisory and insulting'.

The move by Palace boss Ian Holloway has angered Brighton who view Bridcutt as one of their highest assets and said the bid was 'nowhere near the valuation the player commands'.
