Just as his loan move to West Brom had gone through, an unofficial announcement video has emerged of Jacob Murphy signing for the Baggies – and it’s utterly bizarre.
Before we even attempt to explain what on earth Murphy was thinking of here, here’s the video itself:
Ok, he’s got himself a decent loan move after a struggling spell at St James’ Park, but it’s all a bit odd, isn’t it?
To say there’s been a mixed reaction on social media since it was aired on Sky Sports is an understatement.
On a serious note, he’s signing for them on loan until the end of the season – a move that could do him the world of good after a hugely underwhelming and unconvincing spell at the club so far.
Good luck to him – but, please Jacob, sack off whoever told you to create this shocking video!
