Fulham alerted as Blackburn boss Appleton admits Murphy could leave

Blackburn Rovers boss Michael Appleton cannot guarantee Danny Murphy will be staying after stripping him of the club captaincy.

Murphy has been linked with a return to Fulham in a coach capacity.

"I had an honest conversation with Murph and just explained to him that I want to move the football club forward, I want to think about the future of the football club," Appleton said.

"I explained that I was going to make Scott the new captain because I think he's someone who leads by example.

"It was a difficult decision to make but I think it's one that's going to benefit everyone at the football club. Danny took it very professionally, as I expected him to do."
