Newcastle loan signing Joe Willock has promised to “work my socks off” after finishing a deadline-day move from Arsenal.

Willock, an England Under-21 international, will invest the remainder of the season on Tyneside as part of Steve Bruce’s squad.

” I ‘d like to thank all the advocates for their warm welcome and messages so far,” Willock informed the main Newcastle site.

” This is a club with an enormous history that I have actually grown up enjoying and I’ll work my socks off for the team.

” I can’t wait to see everybody and become part of the Newcastle family.”

Head coach Bruce said: “I’m delighted to bring Joe to Newcastle up until completion of the season.

” He is a very exciting and gifted young gamer who can get up and down the pitch and can score a goal from midfield.

” He has actually made a really decent impact at Arsenal after coming through the ranks and to make almost 80 appearances for the club by the age of 21 says much about his development, capability and character.

” He is very keen to come here and test himself and he’ll be a fantastic addition to the team.”

Willock made his Premier League debut against Newcastle in April 2018 and has actually played 78 times for Arsenal, scoring 11 goals.

The 21-year-old made 17 looks for Mikel Arteta’s side in the first half of this season and scored 3 times.
