Neil Warnock told the club website: “Josh is a player I’ve watched for a number of years now and he’s always excited me when he runs with the ball.
“I think he’s at the right age now with his best still to come. He can play an instrumental part in helping us to stay in the Premier League and I know he’s looking forward to the challenge.
“He’s been my number one target since the end of last season.”

Here is how Norwich City fans reacted to the departure of Josh Murphy:
Best of luck to Josh. Inconsistency has stopped him becoming a major player for us. 20 goals in 108 games, 11 million is a no brainer. #ncfc

Best of luck to Josh Murphy, never really took the chance at #NCFC. Has all the potential to be a top player, I hope for his sake his fresh start at Cardiff will fulfil that. Great money for us, time was right for both parties…

Josh Murphy isn’t the polished product, still raw and inconsistent but possesses all the tools relevant to be a match winner on his day. I wish him nothing but the best. #ncfc

A shame to see an academy product leave but this gives us funds to help improve the squad and plug gaps in the finances. Great price for a very inconsistent performer too #NCFC https://t.co/du9QxpradH
