Locadia admits he wouldn't have landed the loan move without Schreuder's influence - who called him directly about making the switch to Germany last summer.
He told AD: "He knew my situation at Brighton, where I had ups and downs and never played a long series of games in a row.
“I need that to be able to get the best out of myself, as I succeeded at PSV. The conversation was pleasant. The trainer touched me because he had studied my situation very well and was able to convince me that I would fit in the team with my qualities."
Locadia is spying a place in Holland's Euros squad next summer.
