Murphy has enjoyed a thoroughly successful first half of the season with the Glovers, netting an impressive 17 goals in 25 National League games so far, with Yeovil Town keen to return to the Football League. Yeovil is keen to keep Murphy on board to boost their chances of promotion but is aware of the interest in the aforementioned quartet, who have been keeping a watchful eye over the 29-year-old.

Murphy started his career in Arsenal’s youth academy, spending time out on loan with the likes of Brentford and Preston North End before joining Dutch side SC Telstar on a free transfer. He spent one year in The Netherlands, returning to England with Dagenham and Redbridge in the summer of 2013.
