Murphy spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom, starting nine with a six further appearances off the bench as the Baggies failed in their bid to earn promotion back to the Premier League at the first attempt. He netted two goals in his spell.

Despite some positive shows the wideman has not done enough to earn a permanent move to the Midlands, and returns to United this summer with a real point to prove.

A £12million Rafa Benitez signing in the summer of 2017, Murphy has been in and out at United – but the lifelong Newcastle fan does not see his future anywhere else.
