Magpies boss Steve Bruce has made no secret of his desire to sign the 21-year-old on a permanent deal after a successful loan spell last season.

Willock scored in seven consecutive Premier League games to help steer the club away from relegation after joining in January.

It is understood personal terms are yet to be agreed.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta refused to confirm why Willock was missing from his squad in the Gunners’ friendly defeat by Tottenham on Sunday.

The England under-21 international made only seven league appearances for the Gunners last season.

Arsenal have been linked with Leicester midfielder James Maddison as a potential replacement, but on Thursday Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers said he thought the England international would stay.
