Blackpool have signed Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy on a three-month loan deal until 2 February.

Murphy, whose identical twin brother Josh also plays for the Canaries, is Lee Clark's first signing since he took charge at Bloomfield Road.

The 19-year-old has previously had loan spells in the Football League at Swindon and Southend.

The England Under-20 international is available for the Seasiders' trip to Fulham on Wednesday.

"Jacob's very versatile in the front part of the pitch," Clark, whose side are bottom of the Championship, told the club website.

"He can play on the left, right, in off the striker or as a second striker. He's got an abundance of pace and great attacking ability."
