Norwich boss Hughton excited about their Murphy twins

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton is convinced about the talent of their Murphy twins.

Josh and Jacob Murphy, 17, signed professional contracts with the Canaries earlier this month, taking them to the end of the 2014-15 season.

They're doing very, very well," Hughton told the Pink 'Un.

"They're two young, developing players and we're delighted to have secured their contracts. We just hope they continue to develop in the same way. Where they are at the moment is probably that little way away from first team football but their development has been excellent."

He added: "I have no problem putting young players on the bench providing their development is good and providing they deserve to be there. But I've also got a good squad here and if you're looking at the players on the bench against Newcastle, they very much deserve to be there."
