Joe Murphy has today confirmed that he will be leaving Coventry City at the end of this month and stepping up to The Championship with Huddersfield Town.
Republic of Ireland international Murphy, 32, will be reunited for former Sky Blues’ boss Mark Robins at The John Smith’s Stadium and will be fighting for the number one jersey with Alex Smithies after signing a two-year deal.
In his three years with The Sky Blues since joining on a free from Scunthorpe United, Murphy only missed one league game and became one of the club’s leading senior figures last season where he was an ever present for both the league and cup competitions; making a total of 156 appearances for the club.
Speaking to the club’s official website, manager Steven Pressley wished the shot-stopper well; “I can’t speak highly enough of Joe. He has been a wonderful professional during my time here and the fact he’s missed just one league game in three seasons speaks volumes.
“But the draw of the Championship was simply too great for him to turn down and while 32 is still young for a keeper, it’s understandable that he wanted to move to a higher level at this stage of his career.
“Everyone at Coventry City would like to wish him well.”
