Jacob Murphy is set to meet with Norwich City over a likely Newcastle United move this summer, according to Sky Sports.
The Magpies earlier submitted a bid of £8 million for the player this week but City rejected it.
The winger and his representatives are set to meet with Norwich this week to find a way around the stalemate in the transfer process. The player is determined to playin the top flight of English football. Murphy impressed at the Under-21 European Championships in Poland this summer.
Sincenetting ten times for Norwich last season, there have been links to other clubs in the Premier League.
Rafa Benitez is expected to return with his team with an improved bid for Murphy. The Spaniard is keen on bringing in more players ahead of their return to the top division after lifting the Championship last term.
Murphy has attracted interests from Crystal Palace, Swansea, West Bromwich Albion, and Southampton. The 22-year old rising star has previously featured for Coventry, Colchester, Scunthorpe, Blackpool, Southend and Swindon.
Norwich can decide to retain him past this season as he is contracted until the 2021. He agreed to four and a half years last November so the club has a strong negotiation tool. However, with the huge interest in the player and his decision to force a move, City would likely consider the financial angle and sanction it.
