Willock arrived on deadline day as he became Steve Bruce’s first and only signing of the winter window, and he has been able to hit the ground running, even managing to score on his debut against Southampton.
Should Newcastle sign Joe Willock?
Since the 3-0 defeat against Brighton, Willock has had to settle for a place on the bench with Bruce opting for just two central midfielders in Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff, and instead having an extra centre back on the pitch.
Speaking on why he would like Newcastle to sign Joe Willock permanently this summer and how it’s not obvious what he would cost the Magpies, Lee told This Is Futbol:
“I think everyone’s got a price but I think if we can sort something out then he’s the sort of player you’d want to buy at the right price.
“It depends what Arsenal are quoting for their young players these days but he’s certainly done well enough for Newcastle to have a look at him.”
