Nottingham Forest lodge bid ‘in excess of £2m’ for Newcastle United veteran

Nottingham Forest have made a bid in excess of £2m for Newcastle United striker Daryl Murphy, with the 34-year old striker offered  a two-year deal by the Championship side according to The Chronicle.

The Times’ North-East correspondent George Caulkin confirmed that a formal offer had been lodged for the Republic of Ireland International:

The Chronicle’s Lee Ryder then confirmed that Forest look to have won the race to his signature, beating Championship rivals Sunderland and Birmingham, who had both made enquiries.

Murphy recently stated that he’d be prepared to stay on Tyneside and fight for his future, however he is now expected to take up the opportunity handed to him by Nottingham Forest, with a two-year deal seeming hard to turn down for a player of his age.

Daryl has been a model professional during his brief spell at Newcastle, delivering some key goals last season. His exit makes sense for all parties and will also free up room for a much needed new striker.
