And Newcastle have today had an improved offer for the 22-year-old, thought to be around £12million, accepted by Norwich.

Murphy, a boyhood United fan, will now discuss personal terms with the club.

If, as expected, Murphy agrees a contract with Newcastle he will become the club's third summer signing.

Murphy caught Rafa Benitez's eye last season when he scored two goals against United in the Championship.
