Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock delighted brothers Chris, Matty playing in England

Arsenal midfielder Joe Willock says the family is full of pride with all three brothers now playing pro football.

Chris, formerly of Arsenal's academy, has now joined West Bromwich Albion on loan from Benfica, while Matty has moved from Manchester United to League One side Gillingham.

Willock told arsenal.com: "My dad deals with all of our affairs because he's our agent, so he's been running up and down, Birmingham and back - and he had to go to Gillingham where my other brother is playing.

"He's doing a lot of running up and down so it's a bit busy for him, but it's exciting times for my family because I know what my brothers can do, so now that they're back in England on home soil I feel like they can push on, the same as me.

"For me both of my brothers are big role models, but Chris because he's so close to me growing up in the academy together to have him back and see him quite often again is amazing. The only thing I can do is tell him about my experience and he can tell me about his experience so we can learn from each other, so hopefully it helps each other to push on."
