Client Jacob Murphy has joined Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan from Newcastle United.
Jacob began his career at Norwich City, joining the Club’s youth academy in 2011 alongside twin brother, Josh. He made his professional debut in January 2014.
After gaining experience on loan at sides including Swindon Town, Southend United and Coventry City, Jacob returned to Norwich’s senior side. Establishing himself as a first team regular, Jacob made 42 appearances in the 2016/17 season, scoring ten times.
Jacob’s impressive form saw him rewarded with a £12 million move to Premier League side Newcastle United in the summer of 2017. Jacob made 25 Premier League appearances for the Magpies in the 2017/18 season and a further 9 in the 2019/20 campaign, before joining West Bromwich Albion on loan for the latter half of the season.
Jacob has represented the England national team since under 18s level. He was called up to the England u21s in 2017 and reached the semi-finals of the UEFA European Under-21 Championships with the side.
We wish him every success at Sheffield Wednesday for the upcoming season and look forward to monitoring his progress with The Owls.
