Newcastle agree fee with Arsenal for Joe Willock, personal terms not finalised

Newcastle agree fee with Arsenal for Joe Willock, personal terms not finalised

Newcastle look set to sign Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock on a permanent basis this summer.

Willock impresses with Newcastle

Willock, of course, spent the second half of the 2020/21 campaign on loan at Newcastle, following a struggle for regular minutes at Arsenal.

In his short spell up north, Willock would quickly become a fan favourite, largely due to the number of points that he single-handedly secured for the Magpies.

In just 14 outings for Newcastle, the midfielder netted a staggering eight goals, seven of which came in his final seven appearances for Steve Bruce’s side.

Newcastle agree fee for Willock

In turn, considering his stellar impact, it has not come as much of a surprise to see Willock linked with a move back to the Magpies this summer.

Steve Bruce even confirmed last month that the club were indeed trying to secure a deal:

“You have to ask Arsenal, it’s their decision and it’s the player’s decision.

“Of course we want him back, he did great with us and gives us another dimension in midfield that we haven’t got.

“We’ll keep bashing away at it.”

And now, as mentioned above, a Newcastle return for Willock appears to be nearing completion.

The Athletic report that the Geordie outfit have agreed a fee with Arsenal for the Englishman.

This fee is understood to be in excess of £20m, though it is also noted that personal terms still need to be finalised.
