The 18-year-old, whose twin brother Josh also plays for the Canaries, made his senior debut for the club last month in an FA Cup clash with Fulham having been a key part of Norwich's FA Youth Cup-winning side last season.

Murphy, an England Under-19 international, has impressed for their Under-21s this season and looks set to move to Swindon when the loan window re-opens.

"I think that's one we've almost done," manager Mark Cooper told BBC Sport. "We can't sign anyone until Saturday, but I think it's more or less agreed."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
