Albion new boy Jurgen Locadia was hard it today as he nears a Premier League debut.

The record signing from PSV is over a hamstring injury picked up against Ajax before Christmas.

The Argus:

He will not feature at home to West Ham tomorrow.

But Seagulls boss Chris Hughton is confident he will be available to play a part in the next six-pointer when his side visit Stoke City next Saturday.
