Sheffield Wednesday fans know Jacob Murphy well, but the latest reports suggest that it is his brother, Josh, could also end up donning the blue and white shirt.

The Owls recently signed Andre Green as a free agent following his Aston Villa exit last year, but it would appear that the club are still considering another attacking signing in the form of the Cardiff City man.

Neil Harris, who hasn’t used Murphy too much this season, has now spoken about the possibility of an exit from Wales, with the likes of Nottingham Forest and Derby County also said to be interested in taking him on board.

As quoted by Wales Online, Harris revealed that he’s been pleased with the 25-year-old, insisting that he’s going nowhere just yet.

He said, "Enquiries, yes. Anything realistic, no… At the moment, Josh stays a huge part of it.

"Josh is a player we have spoken about before, having not had a lot of game-time and is naturally someone who might need some minutes

"Josh has trained really well and continues to train well. He played against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and didn’t quite have the impact in the final third, but I was really pleased with his application and performance.

"So, at the moment, no, nothing in that."

Josh’s twin brother, Jacob, spent a successful spell at Hillsborough last season, and he may be willing to put a good word in for the Owls should they keep pushing to get a deal – loan or otherwise – over the line before the end of the January transfer window.
