The Shields Gazette have put out a report on some comments our winger Jacob Murphy has made to the Mirror.
This is what Jacob has said regarding his future at the club:
“I still very much see my future being at Newcastle United. It’s down to me and the performances I put in.”
With a new manager coming in, we would have to go with the assumption that most players will get a fair chance to show what are they are capable of this summer.
Jacob will be one of those players who will be itching to impress after a less than stellar start to his Newcastle career.
Jacob Murphy was Newcastle’s biggest transfer in the summer of 2017. The £12m signing from Norwich has thus far failed to make the grade in the Premier League.
Jacob Murphy– can the Newcastle fan make it?
This past season he made just 3 starts in 9 total appearances before going on loan to West Brom. While on loan he had his moments but ultimately failed to give any indication that he has a future at Newcastle.
These are very good words by Jacob Murphy who has accepted that it is up to him to salvage his Newcastle career.
He as much as anyone at the club will be keen to show the new manager what he is capable of. Though he may have to wait a bit as it is likely that Neil Redfearn will be taking the training when the players report back on July 4th.
Being a Newcastle supporter since a child, Jacob will have that extra bit of desire to remain in the club’s plans.
We are hoping to see a more consistent and polished Jacob this summer, but we are not sure he is of the standard to play regularly for the Magpies.
