Jacob Murphy wants to prove himself at Newcastle

Jacob Murphy wants to stay and prove himself at Newcastle United.

The winger, loaned to Sheffield Wednesday last season, is back in Bruce's plans after a faltering start to his Toon career.

Outstanding in the Carabao Cup win over Morecambe, Murphy said: “I feel like I have taken my chance but I have to keep going. That is just one game. I know how I played and I want to kick on.

"Hearing what the manager said gives me a lot of confidence. We have several conversations. He keeps telling me to be patient and work hard which I have been doing and I know when I get an opportunity I have to perform.

“I want to keep getting opportunities to play for this club. I have developed my game. I am showing a lot more confidence.

“There will always be setback and you deal with them. I have stayed grounded and worked hard on the training pitch and I have given the manager food for thought."
