Report – Newcastle Hopeful Of Extending Loan Deal For Midfielder Should They Avoid Relegation



Against Tottenham on Sunday, Joe Willock was not in Steve Bruce’s starting eleven for the first time since joining on loan from Arsenal. The 21-year-old had started seven straight matches but was only handed a late cameo at St. James’ Park against Spurs.

However, Willock wasn’t phased by getting dropped and used it as determination to make an impact on the match. The box to box midfielder made one of his trademark late runs into the box and was in the right place at the right time to power in the equalizer.

After the match, Willock expressed his disappointment at not starting but was more than pleased to have gotten the goal that rescued a point for Newcastle. It’ll be interesting to see what Bruce decides to do with the midfield at Burnley on Sunday as Sean Longstaff’s performance certainly justified him getting a start.

Willock has been a very solid signing and adds something different to the Newcastle midfield. He’s become a fan favorite with his gushing praise of the city and it’s loyal fanbase.

Even in these tumultuous times, Willock recently opened the door to him staying at Newcastle beyond this season. This is what the midfielder said just a few weeks ago:

“I love playing for Newcastle.

“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.”

The Chronicle has a report out that says Newcastle hope to extend Willock’s loan move for an additional season if we stay up this season. But they also cite a report in the Sunday Mirror that Arsenal may look to offload him this summer. Here is what is written in the report:

It’s understood Newcastle are hopeful of lining up a season-long loan next term if they stay in the Premier League but the Sunday Mirror claims Willock could even be sold in the close season.

The fee mentioned is around £20m which is likely too much for Newcastle this summer. However, there may not be many takers at that price with most clubs expected to have limited transfer funds this summer.

Hopefully, we’ll get Willock back for another year in the Premier League next season. Then in 2022, who knows what may come. Maybe we’ll have new owners and a full season of full crowds. Then a permanent deal for Willock could be on the cards.

    Bob, believe like I’ve said before, if I could give up I would, it’s caused so many arguments, over the years, but it’s what I’ve always done. And I went on my own. Now I sit with friends who may not be going back, so I’ll be on my own again. The only time I can talk football is on here, so sometimes it gets hard trying to take all the insults, but i do know where people are coming from, deep down I feel the same, every season i say im not going back.

    Magic, I’m really good but had a couple of rants today, so overdid the drama a bit and got my just desserts from my old chum Carltoon. No problems we get on great 99% of the time, just disagree on the ground entry issue (always a hot topic, should have known better perhaps) 🙂

    Been bloody freezing here today, it’s been like Game of Thrones “Winters Coming”.

    I had some great friends in the Gallowgate corner, they were from South Shields, but they gave up as well. Ray and Col. Only I didn’t know their second names. But we had a great laugh.

    Captain,

    I don’t know what it’s about, but on Steve wraiths podcast tonight, he said he knew the details and it wasn’t related to a takeover.
    Make of that what you will

    Do you know why shelvey receives the ball on the D?
    Because you have to run to receive it on the half way line.
    Bruce needs to tell Shelley and Hendrick that it is very difficult to walk or amble past opponents with the ball. It is a distinct advantage to be able to run with the ball. Or without it. Running is good.

    I’m actually. Newcastle lad “born and bred” as they say, but live in South Shields now.

    I was born in my grand ma’s house which was in Villa Place between the West Road and the old Newcastle brewery buildings, less than 1/4 mile from SJP.

    The PA news agency understands that Ashley feels the sale has been agreed (with PIF & Co) and simply needs to be rubber-stamped by the governing body. #NUFC

    Bob,

    It’s certainly being ‘bigged up’
    When they use a phrase such as “we believe is the most ambitious fan led project in English football history”

    That’s a pretty mighty claim!

    OLG, that’s pretty much what the Chron was printing yesterday. Basically reiterating Ashley’s position that he sold the club last Spring, that deal is still on the table and just needs approval of PL. Hence the arbitration.

    Wonder if it’s anything to do with the blog consortium, perhaps Amanda and partners want us to go in with them.
