According to a report in The Sun today, both Ipswich Town and Bournemouth are keeping an eye on Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray, who may be available on loan in the next week or so.
The 31-year-old has only just signed a contract extension with the south Londoners, but has been an unused substitute in our last three games, with summer signing Fraizer Campbell given the nod to come on in front of him when Yaya Sanogo picked up an early injury against Newcastle last week.
There is no doubt that Alan Pardew rates the front man, who remains a cult hero at Palace after scoring 30 goals in the promotion winning campaign of 2012/13, but with the likes of Chamakh, Gayle, Sanogo and Campbell seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order, game time appears to be extremely hard to come by for the former Brighton man of late.
Despite his cameo appearances from the bench, Murray has managed just one goal in 19 Premier League appearances for Palace, which came from the penalty spot against Swansea last term, giving those who remain sceptical over the chances of him ever becoming a prolific scorer in the top flight ammunition to throw at those who want to see more of him.
After a spell on loan at Reading earlier in the season, where he bagged eight goals, there is little to no doubt that he could prove to be the difference for sides like Ipswich and Bournemouth in the final few crucial months of the season, should Palace allow him to leave on a short-term basis once again.
It seems speculation surrounding Muzza just won’t go away.
