West Brom lock horn with QPR,Sunderland over in-form Winger

Published

on

A number of Championship teams have reportedly expressed interest in the Oxford winger, including West Brom.

The 29-year-old, the twin brother of Newcastle’s Jacob Murphy, has helped Oxford move up to sixth place in League One this season with six goals and four assists. Murphy signed a two-year contract with the team after being released by Cardiff in 2022, but his contract at the Kassam Stadium will expire this summer.

2018 saw the Bluebirds pay Norwich a whopping £11 million for Murphy, who rose through the Carrow Road ranks. Following his move to South Wales, the winger also spent time on loan at Preston.

Scouts from Southampton, West Brom, QPR, Sunderland, Hull, and MLS team Minnesota were reportedly present at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday as Oxford defeated Peterborough 5-0.

Murphy, who gave Oxford their second goal against the Posh, was praised by U’s manager Des Buckingham as a “wonderful player.” It pleases me to see how much fun he is having playing football.

Buckingham responded, “He’s very settled and if he keeps performing that way, I’m sure he’ll attract interest,” in response to a question concerning interest in the winger.

With a game remaining against the Tangerines, Oxford is three points ahead of seventh-place Blackpool and in a strong position to make the playoffs. In the third tier, Bolton, Peterborough, and Barnsley presently hold the other play-off spots.
