Murphy has not started for the Welsh side in the Championship since the 1-0 league defeat by Coventry last November.

And the trio of Cardiff’s rivals in the second tier have expressed an interest in taking the wide man on loan this month.

Forest and Wednesday could be ahead of Wayne Rooney’s Derby in the chase as the Rams are currently struggling to pay the wages of their players although an imminent takeover of the club could change that.

Murphy, whose twin brother Jacob plays for Newcastle, cost Cardiff £11million from Norwich back in the summer of 2018.

He has made 15 appearances in all competitions this season but mainly as a substitute.

Cardiff are 16th in the Championship and closer to the relegation places than play-off spots.

Harris’ side have lost four games in a row since Christmas – including an FA Cup third round defeat at Nottingham Forest.

They face relegation-threatened QPR in their next Championship clash on Wednesday.
