Blackpool have axed Jacob Murphy following the leak of a picture in which he mocked the club’s current plight.

The winger was sent back to parent club Norwich yesterday after apologising face-to-face to boss Lee Clark

Murphy appeared in a leaked picture from the social network app Snapchat with the words ‘We’re going to lose...again’.

It’s understood the message was sent privately to a group of Murphy’s friends ahead of the trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Boxing Day.

However, after describing himself as ‘foolish’ in a public apology to supporters, boss Clark decided to cut short the 19-year-old’s time at Bloomfield Road.
