But he could not replicate it in England’s top flight and made just 16 league starts in his four years with the Seagulls, scoring just six goals in all competitions.

His Premier League career got off to a slow start after his debut was delayed by a month due to a hamstring injury sustained whilst at PSV.

Locadia, 28, has been loaned to Hoffenheim and FC Cincinnati in the past few years.

The Dutchman scored four goals in eleven Bundesliga appearances during his first loan spell.

His brief move to the MLS was not as successful with only two goals in 26 appearances.

He will now hope to reignite his career with a fresh start back in the Bundesliga.

Bochum currently sit 12th in the Bundesliga table following six wins and nine defeats.

The Seagulls have been linked to a number of names in the lead up to the January transfer window including Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah.

Graham Potter and his team will be aiming to finish the season in the top half of the Premier League table.
