Glenn Murray recently made it clear he would be happy enough to make his return to Brighton a permanent one – as it stands he’ll stay at the Amex Stadium until the end of the season at least under the terms of his loan arrangement from Bournemouth.

However, as Murray doesn’t think he’ll be in Eddie Howe’s future plans at Bournemouth he has certainly hinted that he would be willing to seal a permanent return this month. Quoted by Argus he said.

‘It’s between the clubs. As far as Bournemouth was left towards the end of last season, I wasn’t involved much and I don’t think I’m too much in the gaffer’s plans. So yes, it would be nice to get out and keep playing football.’

Murray – who has scored 15 goals in 23 appearances this season – went on to admit he would like another crack at the Premier League too.

‘I’d like to get that chance again. I feel as though my goal record in the Premier League holds up, starts versus goals, and I would just be happy to get back there and try to score more goals in that division.’

If the 33 year old keeps scoring the goals during the second half of the season there’s a good chance he’ll help Brighton into the topflight so he could well get that chance with Albion!

According to reports from Sky Sports Murray could have that wish granted – of staying with Brighton – as it’s claimed a deal will be signed off during the transfer window.

This report cites Sky sources as being privy to news a permanent deal – as Eddie Howe had previously suggested could be possible – being arranged shortly.
