The Croydon Advertiser reports that Reading have had a £3 million bid rejected for Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray

Murray featured for Brighton previously in 2008 through to 2011 where he made 118 appearances and contributed a cool 53 goals in his time with the club. This then changed when he moved to Championship Palace and he scored 37 goals in 93 appearances for the London club working out at roughly one every three games.

He scored his first ever goal in the Premier League against Swansea City away at the Liberty and also played other crucial parts in their season including an assist in the game against Liverpool which resulted in a 3-3 draw and seemingly cost the Reds the title.

Murray would be a great signing for Reading adding experience and good quality in the frontline as well as helping to fill the gap Adam Le Fondre has left since joining Cardiff City. Murray almost won the Championship player of the year in Palace’s promotion season of 2012/13 where he contributed 30 goals in 42 games for the side proving he has goals inside him. This season however he will want to make that award his if he joins Reading and will want to beat Matej Vydra, the man who robbed him of his title the last time around.

More details are unknown as yet but with the striker seemingly frozen out of Selhurst Park, a move away looks imminent. Could it be to the Madejski?
