Murphy twins pen new deals

Norwich have handed fresh contracts to twin brothers Jacob and Josh Murphy.

Josh Murphy has already featured 29 times for Norwich, including in the first half of their promotion season last year, though he missed the final push of their play-off triumph due to spending time on loan at Wigan.

His brother Jacob is well behind on two Norwich appearances, but gained first-team experience with Colchester last season, and the duo will now be contracted until 2017.

Both players had made the step up from academy level to professional terms in the winter of 2013, with Josh Murphy saying: "I'm delighted and I'm just glad it's all sorted now.

"The club has got a big place in my heart and I'm happy to sign, and now the real work begins."
