Joe Willock's sterling form at Newcastle United continued on the final day of the Premier League season when he scored once again in their win over Fulham.
It was his eight-goal for the Magpies with the tally matching the record of scoring in seven consecutive Premier League games set by club legend Alan Shearer.
“To be in his company, I’m honored. And that it’s happened for this wonderful club. He has often messaged me to congratulate me and I’m sure he’ll be happy for me,” Willock said of his record to Express.
The player insisted that they stuck together when the team was going through a rough patch and would see about his future in the summer as he is expected to return to parent club Arsenal.
“When we were going through our tough period, we said we would stick together, and we’ve done that really well. We’ll see what the future holds. I’m blessed to have had the opportunity to play for this wonderful club and I’m happy it’s gone so well,” Willock added.
The 21-year-old is said to be considering his future at the Emirates and want guarantees about playing time before he can commit to Arsenal but considering the players at Mikel Arteta’s disposal, his needs might be shelves for a while.
