Bournemouth striker Glenn Murray: I've joined Brighton to reach Premier League

Bournemouth striker Glenn Murray is delighted with his loan move to Brighton.

The 32-year-old enjoyed a prolific first spell at the club with 56 goals in 132 appearances before signing for Palace in 2011.

"It feels very different to the club I left and I'm looking forward to getting involved.

"It all happened pretty quickly. I heard rumblings of it over the summer and last season when Brighton were pushing for promotion.

"I was part of something very special at Bournemouth and the group there is very tight, but unfortunately the second half of the season wasn't as good as the first half for me.

"Brighton were so close last year and I'm just here to help to make the next step and hopefully get the club into the Premier League."
