Newcastle United are yet to offer a new deal to last season’s Sheffield Wednesday loan star Jacob Murphy, as per a report by the Chronicle Live.
The winger is out of contract at the end of this campaign and currently due to become a free agent in June.
Murphy, who is 25 years old, returned to St. James’ Park at the end of his time at Hillsborough last summer and has made 18 appearances for Steve Bruce’s side this term, chipping in with two goals and two assists.
Newcastle have also not offered Dwight Gayle or Andy Carroll contract extensions yet.
Murphy spent the last campaign on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and scored nine goals in 44 appearances in all competitions for the Yorkshire side. He was linked with a move back there last summer.
Bruce has said: “There are a number of players with contracts up. And Dwight is one of them. There will be conversations to be had over the next few weeks. I am sure.”
Murphy moved to Newcastle in 2017 from Norwich City and initially struggled for game time in the North East. He had a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion in the Championship before moving to Sheffield Wednesday.
The former England youth international has since forced his way back into their first-team but his long-term future hangs in the balance with a new deal not offered yet.
