Arsenal loanee Joe Willock speaks out on future after breaking PL record
Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock has spoken out on his future after breaking a Premier League record, as per Sky Sports (via Express).
The on-loan Englishman got the only goal of the game as the Magpies got past Sheffield United. In the process, the midfielder became the youngest in the league’s history to score in six consecutive matches, taking his tally to seven goals in just 13 appearances.
After the match ended, the Newcastle fans were serenading their player with chants of ‘we want you to stay’. He was first asked about the club’s objectives for this season, and Willock told Sky Sports:
“The manager said before the game, our objective is to surpass what we did last season. We always want to get better. I feel like, with this team, Newcastle, we’re a massive club.
“The fans are brilliant. The stadium is brilliant. I feel like we need to aim for more. Our objective is to push for more.
“I feel like getting an extra point than we did last year is a step forward. I feel like next year we need to push on, as well.”
Eventually, the midfielder’s attention was brought towards his future to which the Englishman responded:
“To be honest with you, I haven’t thought about it. I’m just trying to focus on what I need to do for the rest of the season.
“When the time comes, I’m going to have the conversation with my father, my agent and see what happens.”
