Brighton re-sign Glenn Murray on season-long loan from Bournemouth

Brighton & Hove Albion have re-signed Glen Murray from Bournemouth on a season-long loan.

Murray, 32, played for the Seagulls between 2008 and 2011, making 118 appearances. He then left the club, joining Crystal Palace before being offloaded again to Bournemouth in 2015.

However, the striker failed to make a significant impact at the Vitality Stadium and has found himself back with his former club in the Championship.

"He is a real attacking presence who can lead the line, he's powerful in the air, and his goalscoring record speaks for itself," Brighton manager Chris Houghton told the club's official website.

"Most importantly he knows the Championship well, he knows how to score goals at this level and what it takes to get out of this division.

"The move has been a long time in the making and the recruitment department has done an excellent job to finally get the deal over the line.

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

Brighton's first competitive game of the new season is against Derby on Aug. 6.
