Luke Murphy: Attracting interest from the top three divisions

The 23-year-old is the latest product of Crewe's famed academy system to draw attention from afar.

Murphy has spent his entire career to date with the Alex, making close to 200 appearances since making his senior bow in 2008.

Wolves believe he would be a useful addition to their ranks as they prepare for life in League One.

They could, however, face competition for his signature from higher up the Football League.

The likes of Swansea, Leeds, Middlesbrough and Blackburn are all believed to have cast admiring glances in Murphy's direction.

Crewe have resigned themselves to the fact that Murphy will be on his way out of the club this summer, and are looking to get the best possible deal.

The terms tabled by Wolves are considered to be acceptable and it now remains to be seen whether a transfer scramble will be sparked.

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.
