LUFC Leeds in seven-figure bid for Crewe captain

Leeds United are reported to have made a seven figure bid for Crewe Alexandra midfielder Luke Murphy.

BBC Radio Leeds reporter Adam Pope is reporting that Leeds have come in with the bid as competition for Blackburn Rovers and Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are also keen on signing the 23-year-old.

Blackburn and Wolves have already had reported 1 million offers accepted from Crewe Alexandra for the player who made 48 appearances for Crewe last season.

On Friday, Crewe boss Steve Davis admitted the club had accepted a bid for the player from one club and another bid had been made, believed to be from Blackburn Rovers.

Crewe manager Steve Davis said on the clubs official website , "Wolves made a bid that was acceptable to the club and they were given permission to speak with Luke and his agent.

"There has now been another bid and we are in the process of looking through that.

"Nothing has been accepted with that one. If we can reach an agreement with the other club then Luke would be free to speak them."


Only yesterday, the Lancashire Telegraph reported that Leeds had come in with a late bid for Crewe`s club captain, who is a product of their highly successful youth system that has seen a number of players move on to the top level of English football in the past twenty-five years.

Leeds boss Brian McDermott has already admitted this summer that he is looking to build a squad for the future and not just a quick fix and Murphy would certainly meet that criterion.

The midfielder, who made his Crewe debut shortly after his 18th birthday also has an eye for goal and he netted nine times last season, including the opener in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy final against Southend United at Wembley.

The summer transfer window officially opens on Monday and if Leeds were to sign the player for 1 million, it would be the first time they had paid a seven-figure fee since Richard Cresswell signed for the club in the summer of 2005.
