Willock joined Newcastle on deadline day in January and he has proved himself to be a huge talent with four goals since his debut against Southampton, and three of those have come after starting on the bench.
Should Newcastle sign Joe Willock?
The 21-year old is reportedly available for £20 million this summer as Mikel Arteta looks to continue his rebuilding job at the Emirates and the Gunners must raise funds if they are to sign Martin Odegaard permanently.
Speaking on how Newcastle won’t get the option to sign Willock temporarily this summer and what type of contract the Arsenal loanee will be wanting, Howey told This is Futbol:
“I don’t think Newcastle will get that option and I don’t think Arsenal would want another loan deal because if the player wants to go, then he goes permanently.
“Willock will want stability in his life and probably a three or four-year contract, that’s what he wants.”
The £20,000 per week midfielder has found himself out of the side in recent weeks with Steve Bruce opting for one more centre back and one less midfielder to give his side more security and balance.
Bruce appears to have guided Newcastle to safety for the second season as manager despite only being two points above the drop zone just a few weeks ago.
