They're not the only Premier League team asking for a huge chunk of change.

Leicester City, Spurs, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Fulham charge £300 or more.

It's 'absolutely outrageous' according to Martyn James of consumer website Resolver.

"It's absolutely outrageous that some richer kids can effectively buy their way to the top of the mascot list," he said.

"When I was younger, being a mascot was a reward for super loyalty or for having been through a great deal.

"Charging any money for these packages is unacceptable - and it's pretty unknown too.

"It makes a mockery of all the things that our national game is supposed to represent."

The Football Supporters' Federation have also weighed in on the situation.

"Clubs should speak to their supporters about what they think represents a good deal for parents and if fans have specific concerns, we'd be happy to look into it.

"Our campaign focus will primarily remain on affordable ticket prices - particularly fair concessionary and fair young adult prices."
