Cardiff City winger Josh Murphy impressed in his debut season at Premier League last campaign, scoring three times for the Bluebirds as they failed to retain their Premier League status last term.

Murphy joined Neil Warnock’s side last summer, as he left boyhood club Norwich City after 12 years with the Canaries that saw him rise through the youth ranks before establishing himself in the first team, and was then signed by Cardiff.

Murphy has now been linked with a move to Chelsea, with reports claiming that the Blues could make a move for the 24-year-old after the club’s transfer ban has been lifted.

Murphy has admitted that he is not carried away by the rumours and hasn’t given any thought to it.

“I can tell you I took no notice of it (being linked with Chelsea). I don’t know if there’s any truth in it, but I took no notice of it,” Murphy told Goal.

“I wouldn’t say it is a distraction, stuff like that is always going to happen. There is a fine line about it being true and not true.

“It is just something that I would never look into too deeply. It is the end of the season so you always get stuff like that. I see myself staying at Cardiff. Then we go from there.

“You never know what the future holds but as of now I am a Cardiff player and I am gearing up to get ready to fight for promotion to the Premier League.

“I have only been here for a season and I love it here.

“That’s my priority – to be at Cardiff and get Cardiff back to the Premier League.”
