Moises Caicedo's Instagram post begging for transfer contained bizarre spelling mistake that hints he didn't write it | The Sun

BRIGHTON midfielder Moises Caicedo made a shock spelling mistake in his transfer request on Instagram.

The Seagulls star released a statement pleading for the club to let him leave amid interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Both clubs have seen bids rejected and are trying to sign him before Tuesday's transfer deadline.

And Caicedo took to social media to express his feelings.

The 21-year-old said: "I am grateful to Mr. Bloom and Brighton for giving me the chance to come to the Premier League and I feel I have always done my best for them. I always play football with a smile and with heart.

"I am the youngest of 10 siblings from a poor upbringing in Santa Domingo in Ecuador. My dream always to be the most decorated player in the history of Ecuador.

"I am proud to be able to bring in a record transfer fee for Brighton which would allow them to reinvest it and help the club continue to be successful.

"The fans have taken me into their hearts and they will always be in my heart so I hope they can understand why I want to take up this magnificent opportunity."

But Caicedo's message on Instagram contained some errors.

Remarkably, he spelt the name of his home town Santo Domingo wrong.

Instead of spelling it with an "O" at the end of Santo, he put an "A", which appears to suggest that his message was written by a representative.

Furthermore, quote marks were also included on the message, which hints that it might have been drafted by someone else.

Caicedo spent time in Santo Domingo last month following Ecuador's exit from the World Cup and was given a hero's welcome upon his return.

La Hora, the paper in the city, said at the time: "He indicated he has not thought about going anywhere else."

But Caicedo's stance has changed following interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Brighton, who have still said he's not for sale, have responded to the situation by telling the midfielder to stay away from the club until the window closes.

And he won't feature against Liverpool in the FA Cup tomorrow.
