Academy graduate signs until 2021

NORWICH City are delighted to announce winger Josh Murphy has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal, extending his association with the Club until the summer of 2021.

A graduate of the Canaries’ Academy, Murphy made his senior debut in September 2013, notably coming off the bench to net and help his side come from behind to earn a 3-2 League Cup win at Watford.

He spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan at MK Dons, collecting their Player of the Year Award after netting seven goals in 46 appearances.

To date, Murphy has featured 44 times for City across all competitions, scoring six times, including two in 15 appearances this season.

Speaking exclusively to after agreeing terms on a new deal, the 21-year-old said: "I'm really happy to get this done.

"It's another four-and-a-half years at the club I love. I've always wanted to play in this first-team and I've enjoyed every minute.

"My main focus now is getting a regular place in the team and helping us push right back up the league. We're not that far off the play-offs now and everyone's aim is to get back in the Premier League."

The news follows Murphy's twin brother Jacob signing a fresh contract last November, also tying him to the Canaries until 2021.

Manager Alex Neil added: "It's great news for the future of the club. In the games he's played this season, Josh has shown the qualities that he does have.

"He's got blistering pace, he's got real athleticism and he's a goal threat in pretty much every minute of the game. Those types of players are rare and hopefully he can become a first-team regular.

"We're delighted that he's committed his long-term future to Norwich City and it shows that we're retaining our better players, which is a great sign for the club."
