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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
