Sheffield Wednesday have been linked to Josh Murphy this transfer window and Dom Howson has reported on whether a possible deal could happen on transfer deadline day.
The latest on Josh Murphy
The journalist reported via Twitter: “SWFC have ended their interest in Cardiff’s Josh Murphy. The wide man is back in favour at Cardiff, having featured as a sub in their last two matches.”
A blow for the Owls?
Overall in his career, Murphy has managed 38 goals, (Transfermarkt), however he has not managed to show this attacking spark in 2020/21. The winger is currently at Championship side Cardiff City, but has only picked up two assists this season (WhoScored).
He has made 16 appearances, but only three of these have been starts and his attacking statistics emphasise he might not be the asset that the Owls need. On average this season, he has managed 0.6 shots, 0.3 key passes and 0.5 successful dribbles per game.
In a relegation battle, you need players to come in with red hot form and inject some life into the side – Murphy’s displays this season suggest he would not have done that. Perhaps missing out on this deal is a blessing in disguise.
