Glenn Murray arrived at Brighton & Hove Albion on a season-long loan deal from Bournemouth in July 2016.


Murray began his career at Carlisle United, where he graduated through their youth set-up before eventually earning a move to Rochdale following a successful loan spell at Spotland.

A total of 26 goals in 60 appearances for the League Two side fired Murray into the spotlight, and prompted then-Albion boss Dean Wilkins to sign him in January 2008 for a fee of £300,000.

He went on to make 136 appearances in his first spell, scoring 56 times – including 22 goals in the 2010/11 campaign when Albion clinched the League One championship.

He left the club that summer to join Crystal Palace on a free transfer, eventually helping the Eagles to gain promotion into the Premier League with a stunning 31-goal haul in the 2012/13 season.

Murray has since enjoyed a loan spell with Reading, before signing for Bournemouth for £4million in September 2015.
