DONE DEAL: Bournemouth striker Murray heads to Brighton

Bournemouth's Glenn Murray has completed a loan move to Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 32-year-old striker returns to the Amex Stadium having starred for the Seagulls with 57 goals in 133 appearances between 2008 and 2011.

Murray makes the move along the south coast from Dorset to Bournemouth for a season-long spell, having scored four goals in 22 outings for the Cherries after joining from Crystal Palace last summer.

The journeyman enjoyed success with Brighton when scoring 22 goals to help the club win the 2010/11 League One title and the Seagulls are delighted to have him back.

"We are delighted that Glenn is joining us and that we have managed to secure someone of his experience and ability for the new season," manager Chris Hughton told Brighton's official website.

"Everyone at the club, and the supporters, know what Glenn will offer us.

“He is a real attacking presence who can lead the line, he's powerful in the air, and his goalscoring record speaks for itself.

"He is a proven goalscorer and an excellent addition to the squad."
