Jacob Murphy: West Bromwich Albion keen to sign Newcastle United winger
West Bromwich Albion hope to conclude a loan deal for Newcastle United winger Jacob Murphy before Thursday's transfer deadline.
The Baggies have been looking for a replacement for Harvey Barnes, who was recalled from his loan at Albion by Leicester at the start of the month.
Newcastle are set to complete a club-record £20m deal for Paraguay playmaker Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United.
Murphy, 23, joined Newcastle from Norwich for £12m in July 2017.
It is not anticipated he will be the only new arrival at The Hawthorns before Thursday's 23:00 GMT deadline.
Head coach Darren Moore is keen to strengthen all departments in a bid to ensure the Baggies return to the Premier League at the first attempt.
