Murphy joins Albion

31 January 2019

Albion have this afternoon secured the services of Jacob Murphy on loan from Newcastle United until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old winger has made 13 appearances for the Magpies this term. His involvement in the Emirates FA Cup prevents him from playing in Wednesday’s fourth-round replay against Brighton. 

Murphy, an England Under-21 international, is eligible to play in Saturday’s clash with Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns. 

Head Coach Darren Moore welcomed Jacob to the Club and predicted an exciting treat for Albion fans.

“He’s another exciting young prospect for English football, an England Under 21 international who has got qualities I think our supporters will enjoy," he said.

"He has bags of energy, plenty of pace and a freshness which will be a welcome addition to the team. I’m really thrilled we have got him in.”
