New Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew to hold talks with Glenn Murray

As reported by the London Evening Standard, new Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew will be speaking with striker Glenn Murray to resolve his future with the London club.

The 31-year-old, currently on loan with Reading, was previously told he was surplus to requirements by former Palace manager Neil Warnock, but his successor Alan Pardew will thrash out his future with the Eagles following his appointment.

Crystal Palace are desperate for a prolific striker, and considering Murray scored 30 goals in 42 games that helped the Londoners to the Premier League in 2012/13, but suffered a lengthy knee injury that has since seen him out of the setup.

But now he’s coming back to full fitness and getting regular action elsewhere, he stands a chance of a reprieve under new management.

“It was nice to get some consistent games, but I’m a Palace player. I was only on loan at Reading. It is up to the two clubs. It goes beyond me. With the new (Palace) gaffer, we need to speak and I am sure we will. He has been busy up until now and I am sure we will this week,” said Murray.
