Bolton have made an enquiry to Crystal Palace over the availability of forward Glenn Murray.

Murray was a major force in Palace's promotion to the Premier League in 2013, scoring 31 goals in 45 appearances, but a serious knee injury suffered in their play-off semi-final against Brighton & Hove Albion meant he missed the majority of last season - as he made just 14 outings, mainly as a substitute, scoring once.

The 30-year-old moved to Selhurst Park on a free transfer from Brighton in the summer of 2011 and has gone on to score 39 goals in 102 appearances for the Eagles.

Current Wanderers boss Dougie Freedman was the man who took Murray to the club, following a spell at Brighton that yielded 56 goals in 136 games. Prior to his time with the Seagulls, he had spells at Rochdale, Stockport County and Carlisle United.

Reports in Monday's press - coming from Daily Mirror and Sunday People journalist Alan Nixon - suggest Palace are holding out for a fee of £1million, which is currently said to be out of the reach of Wanderers.
