Newcastle United 'keen' on former West Ham coach as Toon 'battle' to seal £6m deal

Joe Willock has hinted he could stay at Newcastle United, as fans chanted for him to sign on a permanent basis.

Chants of “we want you to stay” were sang by the 10,000 supporters inside St James’s Park after the on-loan Arsenal man netted his sixth goal in a row against Sheffield United.

The 21-year-old told NUFCTV: "I want to say thank you for welcoming me with open arms.

"I hope you are satisfied with what I’ve given to the club so far and hopefully there is more to continue in the future.
