Bolton Wanderers have denied holding talks with Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray, according to The Croydon Advertiser.
Rumours had circulated over the weekend or so that Dougie Freedman was planning a bid within the region of £1 million for the striker, something which according to the paper, the club have since denied.
A potential move would reunite Murray with his former manager at Palace, Dougie Freedman, with Freedman keen to bring in a forward before Bolton’s opening game of the season away at Watford on 9th August.
Murray enjoyed a prolific 2012/13 campaign, as he scored 30 goals in the Championship as Palace gained promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.
However he endured a tough spell in the clubs first Premier League campaign, appearing fourteen times as he suffered from a cruciate ligament injury which kept him out for most of the Eagles successful season, as Tony Pulis guided Palace to a superb 11th placed finish.
Murray’s wife, Stacey has also laughed off rumours of her husband signing for Bolton, and she Tweeted last night:
“Bolton? Where do people pluck these rumours from?”
