Edu Delighted with Willock New Deal
Arsenal’s technical director Edu Gaspar is delighted to have tied academy reductions Joe Willock down to a new long-term contract at Arsenal.
The 20-year old has come into the first team picture and impressed with his displays in midfield this season. Edu says Willock is an example of the Gunners’ youth policy bearing fruit.
“We're delighted that Joe has committed his long-term future to us. The hard work of the academy coaches and staff, Joe, his family and everyone behind the scenes have been key to the development of his potential.
"Bringing young players through to the first team from the academy is an important part of our approach and Joe's progression is a good example for how we want to work in the future.
"Joe has shown hard work and determination to get this far. He's continuing to develop and we look forward to him making a big contribution to the club."
