Coventry City have signed Norwich City striker Jacob Murphy on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old, who has played just twice for the Canaries, has spent time on loan with five different clubs during the last 18 months.

He scored four goals in 11 appearances during a stint with Colchester towards the end of last season.

"We've been tracking Jacob for some time," Coventry manager Tony Mowbray told the club website.

"I've continually stressed the importance of pace from both the wide and central positions, and Jacob is a player who has that attribute in abundance."
