Newcastle loanee Joe Willock has given something for fans to cheer about after the on-loan Arsenal man issued some positive indications over his future.
What’s the story?
However, speaking on his time at Newcastle [via The Shields Gazette], Willock hinted he may well be looking to extend his stay at Newcastle.
“I love playing for Newcastle,” said Willock. “When I first came here, I was a bit apprehensive of how I would take to it, because I’d never left Arsenal.
“I’d been at Arsenal since I was four and a half, so coming to a new club, coming up north to Newcastle, was a bit scary. But as I came here and settled in, and saw the love from the fans that I’m receiving, of course I’d love to continue playing here.”
It is not clear if Willock would seek a loan extension or something more permanent.
In that view, Arsenal are well-stocked for creative midfielders – and that could see Willock’s wish granted.
