Arsenal fans react as Newcastle reportedly eye another Joe Willock loan

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the weekend claiming that Newcastle United would like to keep Joe Willock for a second loan, while the Gunners are open to selling him permanently.

However, there is a lot of uncertainty to address before a decision is made on the youngster. The Sunday Mirror noted that Arsenal are open to selling him permanently.

Admittedly, some would be open to a sale if he went for a substantial fee. But the majority appear to feel that a loan move would be the ideal option.

With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans make of the latest report on his future…
