The 22-year-old is understood to have agreed personal terms with Newcastle.

Murphy, a boyhood United fan, is now undergoing a medical in Dublin and the formalities could be completed later today.

He will become the club's third summer signing.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez yesterday said he expected owner Mike Ashley to "keep his word" over transfer funds.
