On-loan Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock has spoken out on his future after breaking a Premier League record of becoming the oungest player in the League history to score in six consecutive matches at the age of 21 years and 272 days.
The Englishman grabbed the only goal of the game as the Magpies edged past Sheffield United.
After the match ended, the Newcastle fans were serenading their player with chants of ‘we want you to stay’.
He was first asked about the club’s objectives for this season, and Willock told Sky Sports: “The manager said before the game, our objective is to surpass what we did last season.
“We always want to get better. I feel like, with this team, Newcastle, we’re a massive club.
“The fans are brilliant. The stadium is brilliant. I feel like we need to aim for more. Our objective is to push for more.
“I feel like getting an extra point than we did last year is a step forward. I feel like next year we need to push on, as well.”
Eventually, the midfielder’s attention was brought towards his future.
“To be honest with you, I haven’t thought about it,” he added. “I’m just trying to focus on what I need to do for the rest of the season.
“When the time comes, I’m going to have the conversation with my father, my agent, and see what happens.”
