"We look forward to the season and continuing the journey with you Jacob!”

Murphy revived his Newcastle career last season after excelling in a right-wing back for Steve Bruce’s side.

He initially struggled when signed by Rafa Benitez from Norwich City for £12million in 2017.

However, after loans at West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield Wednesday, the boyhood United fan came back stronger and forced his way into Bruce’s plans.

Murphy featured 31 times last term, scoring three and assisting four.
