On-loan Colchester United winger Jacob Murphy has said he will remain patient in his "difficult" wait for first-team football at parent club Norwich.

The 20-year-old is playing for his third different loan club this season, while twin brother Josh has been given opportunities in the Canaries side.

"It's difficult and frustrating at times," he told BBC Essex.

"But I'm still young and I've got to be patient. It will come, it's just about when it comes."

Murphy's spell at Blackpool earlier in the season came to an end after he mocked the Seasiders' poor form on social media.

A stint with Scunthorpe in January lasted just three games, but he has impressed in his two U's performances to date, and scored in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Yeovil.

"I'm trying to contribute going forward with goals and assists," he said.

"This is my fifth loan in my career and at a young age I've got a lot of experience. As my mum always says, 'It's nice to be wanted'."

Meanwhile, striker Rhys Healey has been recalled by parent club Cardiff City, ending his season-long youth loan, and youngster Conor Hubble has been released.

"For Rhys to get better, he needs more opportunities to play, and maybe that's what Cardiff are thinking," said U's boss Tony Humes.
