Murphy impressed in his final games for the Steelmen, netting five goals as the club claimed three wins and a draw for the month.

The 23-year-old subsequently sealed a move to Sheffield United and made his debut in their FA Cup win over Oxford United last week.

Murphy was thrilled to end his Motherwell career on a high.

He said: "I won the young player of the month award once before but it's nice to win this one in my last month in Scotland.

"It was a big month for the club and I'm glad to have made a contribution.

"The results were mostly good. I wanted to leave on a high and, although we lost at Celtic Park in my last game, we had some good results and displays prior to that."

On his switch to the Blades, he added: "The thing that struck me was that there's real ambition here and I regard myself as an ambitious person, so it should be a good fit.

"I knew it was a big club but I didn't really realise until I came down how big a club it is.

"They get 20,000 crowds every week. We've got my first home game this weekend [against Yeovil] so that will be another milestone for me."

The striker had been linked with a pre-contract agreement with Rangers ahead of their transfer embargo being lifted in September.

Murphy said: "I know that talk went on but I don't know where it came from.

"I didn't speak to them and it was all just speculation as far as I was concerned."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
