Hibs slam Murphy talk

09 July 2007 01:30
Hibernian manager John Collins has dismissed rumours linking defender David Murphy with a summer move to West Bromwich Albion. The 23-year-old had been linked with a move south to link up with former Easter Road boss Tony Mowbray, but Collins has rubbished such suggestions. He told The Scotsman: "I honestly do not know where that is coming from, but I do know it's simply not true. "There is no agreement on David Murphy and he is working exceptionally hard alongside the rest of the squad for the new season. "We expect stories like this to come out at this time of the year in particular and there is not much we can do about speculation."
