Locadia’s loan extends until June 2021


CINCINNATI – FC Cincinnati and Brighton & Hove Albion have agreed to extend forward Jurgen Locadia’s loan to the FCC for one year. Originally slated to expire on July 5, 2020, with a permanent transfer option from the FCC, the clubs have agreed to extend the end date of the original loan to June 30, 2021. FC Cincinnati will still hold a permanent transfer option at the end of the new loan date.

Locadia, 26, is classified as both a designated player and an international player on the FCC roster. Should FC Cincinnati choose to exercise the permanent transfer option, Locadia’s MLS contract would last until December 31, 2023.

The forward scored in his first MLS appearance on March 1, 2020, coming off the bench in the club’s season opener at the New York Red Bulls. He then started the team’s next game on March 7, 2020, when the team fell to Atlanta United FC. The 2020 MLS season was put on hold five days later due to the coronavirus pandemic and is now set to resume on July 8.

Prior to joining Cincinnati, the forward made 231 professional career appearances, including 146 starts, in nine seasons spanning stints in the Netherlands, England and Germany. He scored 72 goals and added 42 assists on saves with PSV Eindhoven (2011-17), Brighton (2018-20) and TSG Hoffenheim (2019-20).
