Locadia delighted after life changing Brighton move

Brighton's crisis is in need to be resolved immediately.

Their success in sealing a transfer deal for Dutch forward, Jurgen Locadia, could be the solution they hope for. The 24-year old Curacao-born player has just left PSV Eindhoven to face the challenge in saving Albion from the relegation threat.

Locadia seems to be ready for this mission despite the difference in pressure.

"It's a different type of pressure," Locadia said. "At PSV they expect you to play for the Championship, here they want to stay in the Premier League. It's a new experience for me.

"The tempo (is the main difference). The speed of the game and I think the system too. In Holland, we play a traditional four defenders, three midfielders and three attackers and in England it's more four-four-two. I think that will be a big change for me."

Locadia himself has been considered as one of the Dutch talented forward. He scored 45 goals with 34 assists in 127 appearances.
