Murray eager to fit in at Bournemouth ahead of potential debut

Bournemouth's new arrival Glenn Murray is eager to hit the ground running at his new club.


The 31-year-old striker, who arrived in a £4million move from Crystal Palace int he summer, is expected to make his debut for the Cherries against Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday and is eager to please immediately.

"Before I signed, I watched Bournemouth a few times, and that was attractive [football]," he said.

"If it was more of a defensive team, and one man up front was left on his own, it might have been a different decision [to join] but that isn't the case. [The transfer] suited all parties involved.

"You don't know for yourself until you walk through the doors [that the squad is tight-knit] but that definitely is the case. These guys have been through a lot together and I'm hopefully adding to that in trying to stay in the Premier League."
