Josh Murphy joins Cardiff City

12 June 2018

Norwich City can confirm that Josh Murphy has left the Club to join Cardiff City for an undisclosed fee.

Murphy, 23, joined the Canaries aged 11 in 2006. He was part of the City team which won the FA Youth Cup in 2013, and signed his first professional contract with the Club in the same year.

Murphy made his first-team debut as a substitute in September 2013 in a Capital One Cup tie away at Watford, coming off the bench and scoring from 25 yards to help City come from behind to win 3-2.

He made nine Premier League appearances for City in 2013-14, before having loan spells with Wigan Athletic and Milton Keynes Dons.

Last season he made 47 appearances for the Canaries, hitting 11 goals.

In total he made 108 appearances for Norwich’s first-team, scoring 20 times.

Sporting Director Stuart Webber said: “We would all like to wish Josh well for the future. Josh, like his brother Jacob, will always be part of the Norwich City family.

"Josh has had some difficult times at the Club and hasn’t always been every fan's favourite, but he’s always got his head down and worked really hard to be the best he can be.

"Like his brother Jacob he came through our youth ranks and has been at Norwich all of his footballing life. He's a real success story for the Academy.

"Josh was keen for a fresh challenge and Premier League football and we were offered a substantial fee, so we believe it's a good deal for the player and Norwich City.”

Everyone at Norwich City would like to thank Josh for his 12 years with the Club and wish him the very best for the future.
