Brighton sign PSV’s Locadia for club-record fee

London (AFP) – Brighton and Hove Albion have signed PSV Eindhoven striker Jurgen Locadia for a club-record fee on a four-year deal, the Premier League side announced Friday.

The south coast club, promoted last season, did not disclose the figure it took to bring Locadia to England from the Netherlands, but it is thought to be in the region of £14 million ($19 million, 16 million euros).

Locadia, 24, has signed a contract through to June 2022.

“He is a player we have been aware of for some time,” Seagulls manager Chris Hughton told Brighton’s official website. “We are delighted to have signed him.”

Locadia started his career with PSV and scored 62 goals in 175 games for the Dutch giants.

Brighton, three points above the relegation zone in 16th place, face Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday.
