Breaking News ! 861293933">Leeds United and Burnley have joined the chase to sign Newcastle United star Jacob Murphy, Football Insider can reveal. Newcastle are keen to offer the 26-year-old a new deal to fend off growing interest from a string of clubs. A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Leeds and Burnley are racing Southampton, Premier League new boys Watford and Scottish giants Rangers for Murphy. He has just over a year remaining on his contract at St. James’ Park and is currently valued at £3million.
A £12million signing from Norwich City in July 2017, Murphy has made 70 appearances for the Magpies and has four goals and six assists to his name.

Three of those goals and three of those assists have come in his 29 appearances across all competitions this season.
Murphy has revived his Newcastle career over the past 12 months after spending the previous 18 on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and, before that, West Brom.
He has started Newcastle’s last seven Premier League fixtures at right wing-back, with Steve Bruce’s side recording an impressive three wins and two draws in that time.
