Murphy signs a four year deal for a undisclosed fee thought to be in the region of £11m. 12 months ago Murphy's twin brother Jacob left Carow Rd for then newly promoted Newcastle Utd for £10m.
Neil Warnock said this morning:
“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,” Warnock told the Bluebirds’ official site.
“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.”
Murphy has some Premier league experience, he played nine games in the 13/14 season and last year scored 11 times for the Canaries last season including a memorable goal v Aston Villa (see below). In a seaon on loan at MK Dons he scored twice against Cardiff.
