On-loan Norwich City youngster Jacob Murphy has been nominated for an award at Blackpool.

The 19-year-old winger has been shortlisted for the club's November player-of-the-month award, after an encouraging start to his three-month loan.

Murphy, the twin brother of fellow City academy product Josh, has started four matches and scored two goals for the Championship strugglers since joining on loan.

The winger has played an important part in the Seasiders drawing three of their first five matches under new boss Lee Clark.

The England Under-20 international has been used mostly as a support striker during his time at Bloomfield Road, also claiming one assist and one man-of-the match award.
