Bournemouth will only be able to sign Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray on a permanent deal, Sky sources understand.

The Cherries have held talks with Palace over a deal to take the 31-year-old to the south coast club, who have started their maiden Premier League campaign with successive 1-0 defeats.

There were reports a loan deal had been on the table but it is believed the only way Bournemouth will be able to recruit Murray is on a permanent basis.

Bournemouth bid for Murray on the eve of the Premier League season, but the offer was rejected by Palace.
