Bournemouth has added some veteran savvy to its offensive corps, paying $6 million to Crystal Palace for 31-year-old striker Glenn Murray.

The well-traveled forward scored 47 goals in 125 appearances for the Eagles, helping the club to the Premier League with a 31-goal season in 2012-13.

Now he’ll attempt to help Callum Wilson, Christian Atsu and Joshua King score enough goals to keep the Cherries in England’s top flight.


“It feels great to finally be here,” Murray told Cherries Player HD.
“I’ve come across the club a lot in my career and it’s been great to see it progress. The way the boys play football is very exciting. It’s front-footed and it will be nice to try and get some goals from it.”
Palace feels ready to move on from their longtime striker, with Connor Wickham having joined the Palace strikers this summer.
