Brighton Smash Their Club Transfer Record Yet Again

Brighton & Hove Albion have made a habit of breaking their transfer record ever since they were promoted to the Premier League, and they've done it again in the January window.

The Seagulls have confirmed the capture of PSV striker Jurgen Locadia for a club-record fee, with the 24-year old signing a deal until 2022.

Locadia made his league debut in style by scoring a hat-trick against VVV-Venlo as an 18-year old substitute in 2012/13 and has grown to become one of the deadliest strikers in the Eredivisie.

The Best Sunday League quotes:

He boasts a very impressive tally of 45 goals and 34 assists in 127 Eredivisie appearances for PSV and will be looking to continue to provide the goods in the Premier League.

Locadia links up with Davy Propper at the Amex, having won two league titles with the midfielder during his time at PSV.

Brighton haven't disclosed the transfer fee but Sky Sports say they are paying £14 million, which eclipses the reported £13.5 million summer capture of Colombian winger Jose Izquierdo.

Speaking to the official Brighton website about adding him to the ranks, Chris Hughton said:

"We are delighted to have signed Jurgen, and pleased to welcome him to the club. He is a player we have been aware of for sometime, and it's been no secret we have wanted to add a striker of his type.

"He is a strong, powerful and quick centre-forward, with a real eye for goal and will increase our attacking options in the second half of the season.

"Jurgen already has a prolific goal record with PSV in the Dutch top division, and it is one we hope he can continue here with us in the Premier League."
