Arteta gives assurance on flying Joe Willock's future.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has assarted his confidence that Joe Willock, An Arsenal player impressing at Newcastle, will be on Gunners squad as a player next season despite Newcastle United’s interest in signing the midfielder permanently.

Willock has gained fan-favorite status at St James’ Park since joining the Magpies on loan in January, hitting six goals in back-to-back Premier League games backing the club to secure its Premier League rank.

After scoring the solitary goal of Sunday’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United, Willock authenticated that staying in the North East was possible but he’d have to speak to Arsenal about their plans for him.

It looks like Arteta has already made up his mind.


“I’m really happy that things have gone so well for him because of the potential he has,” said the Spaniard ahead of Arsenal’s final game of the season against Brighton.

“I think it was great for him to go away and have a different experience and he has grabbed that opportunity in a really positive and remarkable way. He’ll be back with us, we’ll have those conversations with him and plan the next years for him.

Asked if Willock was part of next season’s plans, Arteta added: “Well, for sure, because he has a contract and he’s going to be here. That’s for sure.”

When it was put to him that Willock’s extraordinary scoring streak had significantly risen the player’s market value, Arteta veered attention away from transfer talk.

“He got the responsibility and the task to go to Newcastle to help them go where they want and I’m telling you, because I spoke with the coaching staff there, that they are extremely happy because he was a key part to contributing to the objectives that they had. That’s a real positive for him.”
