Newcastle are ready to make a new offer for Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy, with the news today that Jacob now wants the Newcastle move and is even prepared to put in a transfer request at the Canaries to force the move to the Magpies.
Newcastle have already put in a £8M bid for Jacob, which was immediately turned down and now we will go back with an offer said to be at least £10M.
22 year-old Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy
Murphy’s reps met with the Norwich City hierarchy in an effort to force through the move to Newcastle and now it seems Norwich have a player with itchy feet.who is 22 years old and wants to move to a bigger club than Norwich City and a chance to play in the Premier League.
The news is in the Northern Echo and say Murphy’s reps made it clear of their client’s determination to force through a move to a club Jacob has supported since he was a baby.
You cannot blame the 22 year-old for being ambitious – he wants to move to a bigger club than Norwich City and a chance to play in the Premier League next season.
Having a disgruntled player is always difficult for any club, but there is still no agreement on the fee and in fact, Norwich were wanting a ridiculous £16M for the player, after £12M had been their initial asking price.
It’s probably in the best interests of both clubs (we hope it’s in the best interests of both clubs) that a compromise agreement is reached soon.
Newcastle will push hard to get what will be a substantial breakthrough this summer, in what has been an extremely difficult transfer window so far.
It also looks like free agent Yoan Gouffran has been offered a better offer than he got from Newcastle from Turkish club Goztepe SK and Mehmet Sepil, Goztepe’s Chairman has said the deal is very close to being completed.
That will take another player off Newcastle’s roster, but the main thing at the moment is the club brings in some of Rafa’s top transfer targets – soon.
