Brighton and Hove Albion's top striker Glenn Murray will leave the promoted Seagulls this summer after turning down another contract offer.

The 27-year-old, who cost Brighton £300,000 from Rochdale in 2008, scored 22 goals this season as the Seagulls won the League One title.

He scored a total of 56 goals in 136 games for the club.

He said: "Unfortunately we have been unable to reach agreement but I want to leave on amicable terms."

The former Carlisle player had recently been linked with a move to Crystal Palace, who will be the Seagulls' rivals in the Championship next season.
