Bayer Leverkusen be a part of Leeds United in hunt for Newcastle United wide-man
Newcastle United’s Jacob Murphy is considered a wanted man. Close-out of contract, Murphy played a major role in the Magpies’ most recent 2020-21 season and has reportedly attracted the interest of several top European clubs.
Murphy, 26, has been with Newcastle United since arriving from Norwich City in 2017 after a £ 10.1m move.
Since arriving, the Englishman has played 72 games in all competitions, contributing directly to 11 goals.
However, with his contract expiring at the end of the month, Murphy, who can play as right winger or right-back, appears precariously about to leave the north-east of England.
