Jacob Murphy

Position:
Midfielder
Date signed:
19th July 2017

Born in Wembley to parents from the North East, Jacob Murphy joined his boyhood club Newcastle United in summer 2017.

Jacob began his career at Norwich City, joining the Norfolk side at under-12 level alongside his twin brother, Josh.

Progressing to the club’s academy in 2011, Jacob was part of the team that won the FA Youth Cup in 2013 and he made his professional debut for the Canaries against Fulham in the FA Cup in January 2014.

A month later, he joined Swindon Town on loan in what would be the first of six loan spells away from Carrow Road - with additional temporary stays following at Southend, Blackpool, Scunthorpe, Colchester and Coventry.

Returning to Norwich for the 2016/17 season, he would become a first team regular and he scored both home and away against the title-winning Magpies.

His performances were enough to secure a dream move to Tyneside and Jacob officially put pen to paper on 19 July 2017.

Jacob scored his first goal for the club in a 3-1 defeat at eventual Premier League champions Manchester City in January 2018.
