The Sun recently reported that outcast Brighton striker Jurgen Locadia is unsettled at the Amex Stadium and looking to force an exit in January due to his lack of game time.
The 25-year-old joined the Seagulls in January in a £14 million deal, however, he has made just 19 appearances for the Premier League outfit since his switch from Dutch club PSV.

The fine form of veteran forward Glenn Murray, who has already netted seven league goals this season, is keeping Locadia out of Chris Hughton’s side. The Dutchman now appears tired of waiting in line behind the inspired 35-year-old and wishes to quit Brighton to get his career back on track elsewhere.
A January loan move may be the best option for Locadia, and Aston Villa would be wise to take a punt on the forward for the second-half of the campaign.
The Villans could do with some additional depth up front and competition for Tammy Abraham. Locadia represents an excellent option to take up this role in the squad, and Dean Smith could rely upon the frustrated Brighton man being eager to prove he has what it takes to make an impact in English football.
However, Villa fans seem less keen on Locadia coming to Villa Park. Of those who took part in our poll, 56% voted against making a move for the out-of-favour Premier League striker. See the full results below.
