Young Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy has been linked with a loan move to Swindon Town.

The loan window re-opens on Saturday, following the closure of the January transfer window at midnight last Friday.

Murphy, twin brother of Josh, made his first senior appearance for the Canaries in the 1-1 FA Cup third round draw with Fulham at Carrow Road in early January.

The Downham Market twins, 18, were both part of the City Under-18 side which won the FA Youth Cup last season and are both on professional deals with the club.

Jacob is now being linked with a loan spell in League One with Swindon, who are currently eighth in the table and five points off the play-off places.

The England Under-19 international has had to watch his brother move ahead of him in the pecking order at Carrow Road this season, but both are young and rated very highly by the club’s coaches.

  • Agreed MB - would be great experience although he may have to spend time on the bench there as well. Great option for them. Would not let Josh go out - think he can have an impact yet this season.

  • I hope we see a bit more of Josh if that`s the case, DJ_F. Nathan, too. Surprise factor; the courage of youth. They haven`t had their mojo coached out of them yet. The Battle of Britain spirit! Get in that Spitfire, laddy!

  • Under the present playing squad I would give Josh Murphy a few more games, he can't be any worse

  • That would be good for Jacob, specially as Swindon have something to play for. I wonder whether Josh needs to go out somewhere too? Or is he now too close to our 1st team? I hope we make the most of this pair`s talent. A Brum fan tells me Tom Adeyemi is doing very well there.

  • Can't we send out Hugh Trollerwood on loan to some Australian team? Please
