Newcastle have had a £12.5m offer to sign Norwich City winger Jacob Murphy accepted, according to the reliable John Percy.

Percy claims that the two clubs have finally agreed a fee for the midfielder, following a bid that was rejected last week for Murphy.
Norwich rejected an offer in the region of £8m for Murphy, which they deemed way below his valuation.
It has been claimed that Murphy would be interested in talking to Newcastle about a potential move, with him and his brother Josh Newcastle fans growing up. This means that personal terms may be no issue in this move.
Murphy has four years left on his contract after signing a new long-term deal last season.
