The tricky winger was named Players' Player of the Season at the Championship team's end-of-season awards ceremony, having scored seven goals in 45 games this season.

The 21-year-old Canaries academy graduate has not been able to stop his temporary team from slipping to relegation but says his time in Milton Keynes has been invaluable to his development.

'I've absolutely loved every minute of it,' Murphy said. 'It's just disappointing we couldn't top it off with staying in the league, which is obviously what it comes down to at the end of the day.

'We've let ourselves down by not staying in the league but the way we've played, it should never have happened.

The FA Youth Cup winner is contracted to City until at least the summer of 2017 and has so far made 29 senior appearances for Norwich, scoring four goals.

Murphy's time with MK comes to an end after Saturday's home match with Nottingham Forest and sees him go into the game tied as joint top scorer, with striker Nicky Maynard.

'It's going to be an emotional day because it could be the last time I'm playing with these boys and I just want to go out there put a show on for the fans, do well for the boys, maybe get a goal or an assist,' Murphy continued, speaking to the Dons' official website.

'Maybe not assist Nicky because I want to get top goal-scorer!

'But as long as I can go out there and play well and we can all enjoy ourselves on the pitch for the last time this season, then that's the main aim.'
