Cardiff City have signed Josh Murphy on a £11 million deal from Norwich City, the Cardiff official site has confirmed.
Murphy will be joining his brother in the Premier League after doing enough last season with the Canaries to convince Neil Warnock that he would be a good acquisition.
The 23-year-old was a rampaging threat down Norwich’s left flank last season and they had James Maddison dictating play from the central attacking areas, so it was a fearsome attack.
However, they lacked a clinical forward and another season in the division means that this talented duo has been broken up with Maddison likely to leave the club as well.
£11 million for Murphy is good value for Cardiff as Warnock aims to add to his attacking options, and potentially replace Junior Hoilett with Murphy because he is yet to sign a new contract.
These funds give the Canaries a much-needed boost even if they have lost an important player. Their parachute payments have come to an end, so they need to cut down running costs such as the high wage bill.
