Sounds like that will go to the wire 

I just hope we have a plan B if we don’t get him.

 

Cant spend the window being lead a merry dance. Murphy contributed heavily last season with goals and assists AND was becoming a promising wing back option. We simply must get him back or replace him - can’t let it go to the wire and then not have the time to get someone else

Leko is a similar player.

West Brom would be furious if we try and convert Leko into a wing back


It would have nothing to do with them considering we’re looking to buy him, not loan.

Are we, I thought it was a loan? Even so, he’s a promising striker, it would be foolhardy in the extreme to try and convert him into a wing back

Final year of his contract...sending him out on loan is effectively a free transfer.

 

$$$$$ will win this one

Outta our league now I’m afraid....

Maybe they will make him sign a new contract before loaning him out

Can see a loan until Christmas. We will give him loads of game time, he will stand out and they will flog him in January to a team pushing for promotion.

I'd like him back, adds a lot to our team. Looks like we've made our intentions known and in pole position, should he be loaned out. 

 

Wages possibly an issue, but considering his contract situation, would a permanent transfer fee be beyond us?

I’d love to have him back, but it’s unlikely given his contract situation Could be a bargain for some team with cash to spare. However, if we are looking for a wing back, there is surely better out there. Unlike many on here, I was not at all convinced by Murphy as a wing back. In fact I think he’s wasted there 

Most of his better performances, were further forward, and often from the bench. What I also liked about him was, he was disciplined defensively, as in, he used to track his man back. He is a really useful winger, good pace, trickery, with an end product, and an awareness to do his defensive duties 

As a wing back though, although enthusiastic, he doesn’t have the positional awareness to be a success in that position A stop gap, nothing more

I reckon they’d still want around £3m for him....a half decent player can do a lot for a club in a season.

I'd snatch their hand off at that TBH.

Was by far our source of creativity last season, went missing in games BUT I’d have him back, chipped in with a few goals too, relatively young, why not?
