Midfielder Joe Willock has joined fellow Premier League outfit Newcastle United on a long-term deal.

The 21-year-old impressed during his loan spell at St James' Park last season after registering eight goals in 14 appearances as they beat relegation.

"I'm buzzing to be here. I loved my time here last season and I'm really happy to be back and to be a Newcastle United player," Willock told nufc.co.uk.

"Leaving Arsenal is obviously a big step, and I'd like to thank everyone involved with the club for all their support over the years, but this is the right move to the right club at the right time for me.

"I only got one chance to play in front of a smaller number of Newcastle fans as a home player last season, so I can't wait to step out in front of a packed St. James' Park and experience that atmosphere.

"Come on, you Maggies!”
