Sheffield Wednesday have cooled their interest in signing Glenn Murray, according to reports from the Sheffield Telegraph

Murray joined Bournemouth from Crystal Palace for a fee of around £4million during the summer but the experienced striker has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch at the Vitality Stadium since his arrival.

As a result, it was widely believed that Murray would be leaving Bournemouth and recent reports had claimed that the Championship duo of Sheffield Wednesday and Brighton and Hove Albion were interested in securing the services of the 32-year old.

Wednesday no longer pursuing Murray

In a further development to the story though, it can now be revealed that Sheffield Wednesday have paved the way for Brighton to pursue the striker after pulling out of the race to sign Murray.

According to reports from the Sheffield Telegraph, claims have been made that Murray is not keen on a move to the North of England and as a result, Sheffield have decided to cool their interest in securing the services of the striker.

Murray is believed to have been a target for Sheffield since 2014 but it is believed that the Owls have finally given up on their hopes of luring the former Crystal Palace star to Hillsborough.
