Aston Villa striker Rushian Hepburn-Murphy joins Cambridge on loan
Cambridge have signed Aston Villa striker Rushian Hepburn-Murphy on loan until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old has made seven appearances in all competitions for Villa this term.
He previously worked with U’s boss Colin Calderwood while he was assistant manager at Villa Park.
‘Rushian provides us with a different type of centre forward and will add to our ammunition in that area of the pitch,’ Calderwood told the Sky Bet League Two club’s website.
‘The loan works well for all parties as it will also give him a super platform to develop his senior playing experience.’
Hepburn-Murphy, who joined Villa at the age of nine, made his Premier League debut as a 16-year-old against Sunderland in March 2015.
