Aston Villa forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has caught the eye on loan at Cambridge United, after making his debut.

Cambridge United have generally praised Aston Villa forward Rushian Hepburn-Murphy for his display on debut.

Villa took the rather surprising step to loan out Hepburn-Murphy to League Tow, given how highly he is regarded.

And the Villa prospect stepped straight into Cambridge’s starting line-up for their last match.


Hepburn-Murphy was selected to start for the U’s against Notts County, and the Villa loanee helped his temporary club to an important win.

Cambridge won 1-0 at the County Ground to move away from the drop zone in the Football League’s basement division.

And Cambridge fans have largely encouraged Villa man Hepburn-Murphy’s display.

Cambridge are next in action against Northampton Town on Saturday, when Hepburn-Murphy may well get the nod to start again for Colin Calderwood’s side.
