Brighton and Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet says contract talks with top-scorer Glenn Murray are in deadlock.Murray, whose 22 goals have helped the club to the League One title this season, is out of contract this summer. [LNB]Poyet told BBC Sussex: "We have a limit and must work to those limits. If it's not enough, it's not enough. [LNB]"It's not like I can go out and make an offer like any other team, that is something we have explained and tried to sort out." [LNB]Poyet does not expect his playing budget next season to mirror those of all the other clubs in the Championship. [LNB]"We were in a situation where we were the fifth or sixth (highest) budget in the division," he said. [LNB]"We are going to another level and we will increase our budget a lot, but we are going to be middle or maybe worse depending on who comes down from the Premier League. [LNB]"This means our level of payment is going to be less than the top 10 or the top 12." [LNB]Murray will miss the final game of the season at Notts County with a shoulder injury.
