Bournemouth announced the departure of forward Glenn Murray, who has joined Brighton on a season-long loan deal.

Despite the departure of Matt Ritchie, who left for Newcastle in a £11 million move, Murray was deemed surplus to requirements at the Vitality Stadium following a new deal for Callum Wilson, the emergence of Benik Afobe and the recent signing of Le Havre youngster Lys Mousset. Murray arrived last summer on Deadline Day in a £5 million move from Crystal Palace and went on to score four goals in 23 appearances in all competitions. But now the 32-year-old will join Chris Hughton's Championship, which barely missed automatic promotion into the Premier League on the final day of the season.

Glenn Murray's 82nd-minute goal pulled Bournemouth out of the relegation zone for its first win in more than two months: a 1-0 victory away at Chelsea.

Murray lost his starting spot last month to Joshua King, but delivered his most impressive showing less than two minutes after coming on as a late second-half substitute. Neither side managed to grab a hold of the game despite multiple chances until Steve Cook chipped a pass across goal that landed at the feet of Murray, who punched it in for the match-winner. Not to go unmentioned, the Cherries recorded their second clean sheet of the season despite an injury crisis at the goalkeeper position. Artur Boruc came back into the lineup despite an injured thigh due to an injury to backup keeper Adam Federici. The former Southampton keeper made seven saves to keep Chelsea off the score sheet as the club had to manage without two centre-halves in Sylvain Distin and Tommy Elphick.

AFC Bournemouth were clobbered by Manchester City in a 5-1 loss, but Glenn Murray managed to notch his second goal in as many weeks for the lone Cherry score.

It was over before it ever began for Bournemouth as they ran into a Sky Blue side who are scoring for fun right now. After trailing 2-0, the visitors were given a bit of pep from Murray, who drilled a shot into the bottom corner to slice the deficit in half. Two City goals were scored from spilled saves by Adam Federici who looked extremely uncomfortable between the sticks all afternoon. With their team captain center back and top attacking option, Tommy Elphick and Callum Wilson out of the picture, the Cherries could find themselves in relegation trouble but surely there are better days to come than this for them.

Glenn Murray connected on a Matt Ritchie cross in the first half but was denied from the spot in the second half and Bournemouth and Watford were forced to split the points at the Vitality Stadium.

It was a mixed first weekend as the Cherries' lead forward for new boy Glenn Murray. He scored a goal, picked up a yellow card for an ugly-looking tackle and then missed a penalty that could have won his team the match. Bournemouth will be buoyed the fact that they were the more dangerous of the two sides even without their talisman who will be out for at least six months. On the other hand, the Cherries need points in a big way and they will likely view this as two points lost rather than one earned.

Bournemouth have secured the services of Glenn Murray from Crystal Palace.

The Palace striker was a part of a pretty big rotation and Bournemouth have taken advantage by grabbing him on a fairly good deal. The length of the deal is unknown, but we could find out more in the coming hours. Murray will have some fantasy value if he gets to start next to Callum Wilson, but don't be surprised of he starts his Bournemouth career on the bench.

Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray is reported to be on the hit-list of Premier League debutants Bournemouth, for a fee in the region of £2 million…

Much of the pre-season talk at Palace has been about players coming in, but one who looks to be on his way out is Glenn Murray. The former Brighton striker was Palace’s top scorer last term, hitting seven goals and providing three assists. Not a huge total perhaps, but to his credit it only took him nine starts to outstrip Palace’s other striking options – all of whom played more. Boss Alan Pardew has been clear in his intention to bring in a center-forward though – adding Chelsea youngster Patrick Bamford on loan, but also pursuing Loic Remy and Charlie Austin. Murray might be the least suited to the counter attacking style that did well for Pardew last season, or perhaps the only one he can get a fee for. Bournemouth see Murray as an ideal foil for their top scorer last season Callum Wilson, who signed a new four year deal this week.

Glenn Murray continues to thrive as Crystal Palace's lone striker.

Murray's career at Selhurst Park looked to be over under Neil Warnock, but he has been thrown back in the starting XI by Alan Pardew (initially because of injuries to Marouane Chamakh, Yaya Sanogo and Fraizer Campbell) and has four goals in his last four Premier League games. Aside from a very poor fantasy week against QPR (committing five fouls and picking up a yellow card) Murray has returned 14 points, 17 points and 14 points in the Yahoo game over the past four weeks and has been restored as the club's penalty taker. With Palace in good form it makes the striker a tempting option moving forward, but his aggressive style of play will lead to a lot of cards, so you'll need to be prepared for this potential outcome, as we saw with his -4 points in Week 29 and his sending off against West Ham in Week 27.

Crystal Palace are facing a striker shortage for Week 28 as they look to keep up their fine form at Southampton.

Palace will be full of confidence having comfortably brushed West Ham aside but the Eagles are suffering from a striker shortage as Glenn Murray serves a one game ban joining injured trio Marouane Chamakh, Yaya Sanogo and Fraizer Campbell [all hamstring] on the sidelines. Dwight Gayle is likely to be the lone frontman in a 4-5-1 with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie supporting but Shola Ameobi is available should Pardew prefer a 4-4-2 formation. Jordan Mutch [thigh] will miss out after limping off at the Boleyn Ground while his replacement James McArthur should retain his place. Mile Jedinak has until 6pm [GMT] on Tuesday to respond to an FA charge of violent conduct following his alleged elbow on Diafra Sakho.

Crystal Palace won their third straight match on the road in convincing style as Glenn Murray played a key role in the 1-3 victory over West Ham United.

For the very few out there that had Murray playing for their fantasy teams, take a bow. Alan Pardew is king of the road right now, ringing in five changes and looking right on every call, especially the inclusion of Murray. After the game looked to be heading to half without a goal, Murray took a shot that went on target and was redirected by Aaron Cresswell who blocked Adrian's view and the ball trickled in. Scott Dann would put the Eagles up two when he headed in a Jason Puncheon corner at the far post early in the second half. Murray then sealed the points with a more convincing goal, timing a diving header off a Puncheon free kick for his brace. Palace's attacking options are looking better with each passing week, though Puncheon probably is more dependable for an uninterrupted run in the side than Murray is.

Glenn Murray scored one in stoppage time and had a second hit the post as Crystal Palace fell just short of reversing a 2-0 Arsenal lead.

A 2-0 result was always going to flatter Arsenal who managed to absorb a lot of pressure while failing to hit their best going forward. Alan Pardew's men nearly netted a great point but Glenn Murray's 94th minute header hit the post and into David Ospina's gut for the final significant act of the day.

Crystal Palace's Glenn Murray has made a move to Reading on loan.

Murray is out of favour at Crystal Palace as they've signed Kevin Doyle and won't be in the Premier League until January, which is when Doyle's loan ends. We will update his status in January if he somehow becomes fantasy relevant, but that's very unlikely.

Glenn Murray scored again but Crystal Palace were defeated 3-2 by Brentford in an entertaining friendly.

Palace had initially gone 2-0 behind before fighting back thanks to goals from Murray and Marouane Chamakh. As we've mentioned here previously, Murray's return to full fitness after a full pre-season is a huge boost for the Eagles, as the striker missed the majority of the last season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury. Brentford ended up winning this one thanks to a late goal, but it was a good work out for a strong Palace side.

Glenn Murray and Jake Gray were on target as Crystal Palace began their US tour with a 2-2 stalemate against Columbus Crew.

Murray continued his solid start to pre-season with his third goal in two games, as Palace were held to a draw in Ohio. The striker missed the majority of the Eagles' return to the Premier League last season as he recovered from a cruciate ligament injury, but he's looking sharp as Tony Pulis continued to ease him back in with another 45 minutes of action. As the club's designated penalty taker, Murray could prove a handy budget option for the Yahoo fantasy game, priced at less than £3million.

Crystal Palace kicked off their pre-season campaign with a stunning 13-1 victory against GAK Graz in Austria on Wednesday evening.

Not a bad start to pre-season for the Eagles. GAK Graz are a part-time side working their way up the Austrian football pyramid, but this is still an impressive result. Stephen Dobbie scored four goals, with Glenn Murray, Joe Ledley and Jonny Williams grabbing a brace each. Yannick Bolasie, Jerome Thomas and Marouane Chamakh were also on target for the visitors. Murray's display will be the most pleasing to Tony Pulis, and with a full pre-season behind him the striker will be looking to have a proper crack at the Premier League after a cruciate knee injury ruled him out for the majority of the last campaign.
