Newcastle United fans have been reacting to claims coming out about the proposed transfer of Joe Willock.
It would appear as though Newcastle United are well on their way to completing the signing of the 21-year-old midfielder, with The Athletic claiming that terms between the two clubs have been agreed, with it now just down to Newcastle and the player to make a deal happen.
However, it appears as though there are some setbacks to the saga, with Sky Sports reporting that the two sides are ‘a distance apart’ when it comes to reaching an agreement, with The Telegraph claiming that the hold-up surrounds the length of the contract, although which side is looking for the contract to be longer or shorter is as yet unknown.
The news of the delay was relayed to Newcastle United supporters by journalist Keith Downie, where it’s fair to say there weren’t a lot of happy voices amongst them:
Do you think Newcastle will sign Willock this summer?
Despite the delays, it should be noted that Newcastle do have until 12pm on Friday to complete the deal for him to be registered in time for the first game of the season, so there is still a little bit of time left to work things out.
And things have since taken a positive turn, with Lee Ryder reporting that Willock is set to undergo a medical in the coming day or so.
