We’ve been looking at a number of players and how they performed last season, in an attempt to maybe pinpoint some of the players Graham Carr and his scouting team may be keeping tabs on, and could even be a target for Newcastle this summer.
Jurgen Locadia – 6’3″ 19 year-old PSV striker
One player who had a good season last term was PSV’s 19 year-old striker Jurgen Locadia, who scored 11 goals in 22 appearances for the Dutch side.
Jurgen started his career back in 2001 when he joined VV Bargeres when he was just seven years old, and he played at FC Emmen, RKSV Sarto and Willem II before joining PSV in 2010.
Locadia made his debut in September of 2011 for the top Dutch club, when he came on as a sub in a KNVB Cup match against VVSB, and eight minutes after coming on he scored his first goal for PSV, but in that season he made only two appearances with one goal..
Jurgen was born in Emmen in the Netherlands, and he’s played for all the Dutch Youth sides from U17 through U21.
He is still young and doesn’t turn 20 until November, and it could be a decent time for Newcastle to consider this big striker.
Here’s some video of the youngster in action.
