Darren Moore gushes over West Brom ace Jacob Murphy

West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore looks on at the Bet365 Stadium on February 09, 2019 in Stoke on Trent, England.

The West Bromwich Albion winger scored his first goal for the club on Tuesday night.

Darren Moore the head coach

West Brom boss Darren Moore spoke to reporters about the quality of Jacob Murphy, and suggested that the winger has tremendous pace and quality, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail.

The 23-year-old joined the Baggies on loan from Newcastle United on transfer deadline day last month, and he has already showcased his undeniable ability for Moore's side.


West Brom are right in the hunt for promotion back to the Premier League this season, with just six points separating them and second placed Norwich City, and Murphy could prove to be a really important addition for them.

Moore is certainly a big fan of the former Canaries ace.

The West Brom boss told reporters how impressed he has been with Murphy's pace and all-round ability, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail:

“He’s blessed with wonderful speed, and he’s got some tremendous quality, He’s a player with tremendous pace and ability."

West Brom travel to Aston Villa tomorrow in what will be a hugely important Midlands derby for both sides.

And Murphy will be hoping to take his fine form into the clash at Villa Park.
