Josh Murphy to have medical at Cardiff ahead of move from Norwich

11 June 2018

A number of clubs were after him but now it is widely reported that Cardiff have succeeded in landing their target.

Josh Murphy could become the second to leave Norwich City for a large fee after his twin brother, Jacob Murphy left for Newcastle United for around £12 million a year ago. They could cash in on him this summer for the right price.

He scored one of the goals of the season with his stunning effort against Aston Villa towards the end of the season and put in an impressive display in his team's defeat against Cardiff later that month. Murphy's twin brother, Jacob, left Norwich last summer to join top flight outfit Newcastle United.

It means Norwich will have banked over £20m from the sales of the Murphy brothers, who will now face each other next season.

Cardiff are close to signing winger Josh Murphy from Norwich in an £11million deal.

Murphy would become Cardiff's joint-record signing after they bought Gary Medel from Sevilla in August 2013 for £11million.

Murphy, who scored 11 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions for the Canaries last season, looks set to join his twin brother Jacob - now at Newcastle - in the Premier League.

Cardiff manager Warnock has previously said he wants "five or six" new signings to add to his squad that earned top-flight status with a second-place finish in the Championship'.
