Premier League club looking to secure £8.5m deal for exciting Norwich City man



According to the Mirror, Newcastle United are keen to secure the service of Norwich City’s Jacob Murphy, with the Premier League side edging closer to completing an £8.5m deal.

A host of Premier League clubs, including Crystal Palace and Southampton, have shown an interest in Murphy this summer, but Newcastle appear most likely to complete a deal.

Since making his Norwich debut in 2013, Murphy has impressed on-loan away from Carrow Road, but worked his way into the Canaries’ first-team last season, excelling in the Sky Bet Championship.

The 22-year old made 37 Championship appearances last season, scoring nine league goals for Norwich and helping them to eighth in the 2016/17 final league table.

Murphy’s impressive form saw him earn a call-up to England’s under-21 squad, who he then impressed for during the European Championships earlier this summer.

The forward made four appearances for England, scoring one goal and helping Aidy Boothroyd’s youngsters to the semi-finals.

Should Murphy leave Carrow Road, he will become part of the mass exodus at the club this summer, will Norwich overhauling their playing squad ahead of next season.

Jonny Howson and Graham Dorrans completed moves away from Norwich last week, whilst seven first-team players were also released earlier this summer.
