According to a report from Sky Sports, Newcastle ace Jacob Murphy is currently on his way to Yorkshire to undertake a medical ahead of his proposed loan move to Sheffield Wednesday.

The 24-year-old joined the Toon from Norwich City in the summer of 2017 for a fee believed to be worth £12 million, according to BBC Sport, and he has gone on to make 41 appearances in all competitions for the Tyneside outfit.

 

Murphy will undoubtedly be a decent addition for Sheffield Wednesday, as the south Yorkshire outfit look to push for promotion this season.

The Newcastle winger possesses rapid pace, and his direct playing style is ideally suited to the intense nature of Championship football.
