Glenn Murray already planning next Brighton contract

Glenn Murray is already planning his next contract after penning a new 12-month deal with Brighton.

The 36-year-old striker signed a new contract on Monday, which takes his stay with Albion till June 2021.

But with his deal taking him past the age of 37 can Murray see himself continuing his career after?

He said: “Why not. I can tell you from my heart I think I can.

“The hunger is still there, which I think is critical.

“The mental side do I still want to do it and the answer to that is yes, I still want to play and score goals, it is the best thing in the world, it is what I enjoy doing.

“My body might give up tomorrow, it might give up in three or four years who knows but I try to take as good a care as possible of it and hopefully it lasts a while."
