Jurgen Locadia wants a January move away from Albion in a bid for more playing time.

The Dutch striker has told reporters in his homeland that he “never had the chance” to show what he could do at the Amex.

He claims he is not clear as to why he has not been playing regularly, that he is angry at his situation and that he sees no imminent change.

Locadia was on the cover of the sports section produced by the De Telegraaf newspaper today.

In the feature, he says: “I try to stay positive, but I also get older. I’m now at an age that I have to play weekly. At Brighton, I do not feel that my situation will change quickly. In my opinion, I never had the chance to show what I am worth. I think winter is a good time to think if this is still good for me.

“I haven’t had a real clear explanation why I don’t play. The coach will find the other strikers better. I must, of course, respect that. But it is also my career, I cannot keep saying ‘yes and amen’. I train super hard, I am top fit, but I have to show it in ten minutes of inclusion. That is really difficult.”

Locadia got off to a good start for his new club after a record-breaking winter move from PSV, netting against Coventry and Swansea.

He told De Telegraaf:“The whole storyline is wrong. That is what makes me angry. I was fit in February, scored goals and also played a good match against Manchester United in the FA Cup. After that I hardly played, while they wanted me at all costs in January. In the summer I put in a good preseason, but in vain.”

Asked about a possible move, he said “In the summer, a departure was not an option for Brighton, although there was interest from beautiful clubs. Then I agreed with my agent to look at the situation in the winter.

“Soon there will be a conversation. I respect Brighton, but I hope they respect me in this situation. I’m only human. I want to go for the highest level and not be loaned to a club in the Championship, for example.

“I hope for a club in Spain, Germany, something like that. Of course I have to show it myself and then hope that I get a fair chance.”

Locadia is not totally negative about his time so far in England.

He said: “I have become even more complete as a footballer. But then I want to be able to measure myself against other players. And not just in training.”
