MURRAY COMPLETES PERMANENT MOVE

31 January 2017

The striker's loan move has become permanent.


Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of Glenn Murray from AFC Bournemouth on a permanent transfer, on undisclosed terms.
 
Murray has scored 15 goals in 28 appearances since his loan arrival from the Cherries this summer and has agreed a deal until June 2019.
 
Manager Chris Hughton said, "Glenn has made a big contribution in the first half of the season, not only in terms of his goals, but as a senior member of the squad.
 
"He has done exactly what we had hoped he would do when we took him on loan from Bournemouth in the summer, and has been a crucial part of our team and squad so far this season. I am delighted that he wants to commit his long-term future to the club."

Murray, 33, began his career with his hometown club Carlisle United, with two spells either side of a stint in North America with Wilmington Hammerheads.

Subsequent spells followed with Stockport County and Rochdale before his first spell with Albion, signing for Dean Wilkins in a £300,000 move in January 2007.
 
He fired 56 goals in his first spell, helping Albion win the League One championship in 2011, before moving to Crystal Palace.
 
Murray scored 47 times for the Eagles, helping them to promotion to the Premier League in 2013, and after a brief spell on loan at Reading in 2014, made a big-money move to Bournemouth in the summer of 2015.
 
Despite finding opportunities limited at Dean Court, he still found the net four times from just seven starts for the Cherries, including a memorable winner at Stamford Bridge.
 
He joined Albion on a season-long loan deal in July 2016; and he has now scored 71 of his 165 career goals for the Seagulls.
