Chris Hughton is urging Jacob Murphy to make the most of his loan stint at League Two play-off hopefuls Southend United.

Murphy has linked up with fellow Norwich City academy product Jamar Loza after agreeing a Roots Hall deal until the end of the season. Both have previously been out on loan in recent months, along with the likes of Cameron McGeehan and Adel Gafaiti, and Hughton insists it is vital the club’s new wave make their mark. Loza impressed for the Shrimpers earlier this week with a goalscoring home debut in a 3-0 League Two win over Oxford.

“Jamar played well. I watched the game and his all-round performance was very good,” said Hughton. “He looked what he is, an excitable young man delighted to be playing and scoring. He received the man of the match, which was a nice boost. Sometimes it works out well for them the first time they go out on loan and with others it takes two or maybe more loans, but it is an invaluable experience for young players.

“I want them to go and play really competitive football because you find out a lot about them. Some we feel come back and are ready and others perhaps need to go out again. It is also about making sure it is the right club for them and we consider that a crucial factor with any loan.”

• Loza intends to repay Southend boss Phil Brown after earning his chance to boost Southend’s promotion push.

“I was really psyched up for the game and was hungry for the chance. Phil Brown gave me that chance. I wanted it so badly when I was out there,” said Loza. “I’m just looking forward to the next one now.”

  • Morris and McGeehan look good too. We should go United 92 with the situation next season and just storm the championship.

  • I've heard only good things about Rudd from his loan. If Ruddy where to be poached (I do find this unlikely though, think he's happy here) I would consider Rudd as a first team replacement. He was always the more talented out of himself and Steer, sitting on the bench as a young goalkeeper does you no good at all. Fair play to Dec and I think we will start seeing a lot more of our youth team next season. Influential loans to test them and I suspect a breakthrough from young Josh Murphy, the most advanced of the young players. Great to have so many great young lads.

  • "Some we feel come back and are ready" ....Really Chris? I highly doubt the likes of Jacob Murphy & Loza will come back from a month-ish loan deal and suddenly be higher in your regard than Snod,Redmond,Pilks,Bennett etc...for Murphy for example. Im all for loan deals but longer term ones like Declan Rudds is where you will see the biggest differences to whether they will 'make it' or not at NCFC.

  • How do you tell the difference, Matt? Are you Andre Marriner in disguise? Hughton`s King Midas in Reverse. I feel elated that the Oracle has returned. Really.

  • Agree chap. Always liked Rudd over Steer. Only thing im eager to see with Rudd is whether he has gained in sizestrength. In his few games in the Premiership under Lambo I always felt he was very lightweight despite being taller than Steer. Hes young though and its possible. Look at Steer at Villa now. Bulked up no end since he left NCFC. In terms of Josh Murphy personally in my expert ;) opinion he could do with a full season on loan at a Championship club next season (should we stay in the Premier League). Short spells of a month here and a month there dont really do alot for anyone. By time you settle your on your way back again. Josh certainly looks exceptionally better than Jacob but hopefully Jacob will gain further experience as well.

  • Matt agree that season long loans to championship sides would be far more beneficial to our young lads. Providing they have a call back clause in them, well you never know,
