Newcastle fans react to report on Arsenal loanee Joe Willock

The Sunday Mirror (4/4; page 63) claimed that Newcastle want to sign Willock on loan ahead of next season. However, there are a couple of big hurdles to clear.

Plenty have lauded Willock and the impact he has made. And they have insisted that a second loan deal has to be a priority for this summer.

With that in mind, here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
