It has been two weeks now since the January window elapsed, and the North London side was not left behind in several touches here and there. They came up with a lucrative plan, though not paying a lot, to cushion its squad by letting go some of his players termed as outcasts, the likes of Maitland Niles, Shkodran Mustafi, Joe Willock and Mesut Ozil. Moreso, some academy boys also left for loan move to championship sides where they could get more time and develop further in their skills.
According to exclusive reports by Metro podcast, the 20-year-old English professional footballer, Joseph George Willock, commonly known as Joe, who plays as an attacking midfielder, left for Premier League club Newcastle United at the brim of the January transfer winter. The Magpies fallen for a great opportunity to capture the services of such an uprising star, as they are just six points behind the struggling North London side, and the Gunners seemed not to regret for the erroneous decision they made.The move has been ridiculed by the legends, and even part of the board members, as they claimed that the superboy was not a by the way in the Emirates colney, as he was just fit for the opportunity granted to him in the senior team. They had to go ahead and demand for explanations as to why only scoring machines are allowed to leave the Emirates while the docile characters are left untouched. According to their spokesperson Ian Wright, the legends furiously claimed that the kind of injustice currently practised by the Arsenal management can never bring goodies at the Emirates, unless they change their priorities related to transfers.
The Telegraph also reported that Joe had been a regular figure for the under-18s just 12 months earlier, and later made his senior debut in the 4-2 win against Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League in September 2017. He then went on to feature in the Premier League, FA Cup and EFL Cup, starting six times iveral. He maintained his fine form at under-23 level too, recording one goal and five assists. He currently holds a record of 21 career goals, with already a debut goal with his new club Newcastle United where he opened the scoring at 16th minute. Such a character is rare to find, and the old boys wished the boy should return in the summer to help the team.
