Brighton striker Murray denies knowledge of Man Utd deal

Glenn Murray says he didn't know anything about Manchester United's reported interest towards the end of January.

The 36-year-old striker penned a new deal with Brighton this week, after he was linked with a late move to Old Trafford.

Murray told talkSPORT: "It was a little bit up in the air.

"Obviously I want to play more football and the club appreciated that.

"But they offered me a deal and I'm just glad to extend my stay at the club, and just prolong my career in the game to be honest."

Quizzed if he received a formal offer from United, Murray added: "Not really to be honest.

"I've seen the story, but I haven't heard much about it.

"I just let my agent deal with all that and I just try and concentrate on what I've got to do."
