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."

The former Stoke City and West Brom striker scored in his opening games against Genk and Charleroi.

Dury told talkSPORT: I like the boy he is doing very well. Berahino is an excellent football player and intelligent.

He comes on time, he takes his breakfast and lunch with the boys.

"He even has a special programme where he watches the opponent we play in our next match and he knows a lot of information about the other team. This for me is a real professional.

I have got nothing to say about the past. The past is the past. I have a project with the boy in the future it is not about the past.

"I am working now with a player who is happy and I am happy with him. I love the boy. The boy is accepted by all the players.

"Now I am looking forward. This weekend he was in the team of the week, he has scored two goals already so you are listening to a happy coach.

"For the moment, I have the model professional."

His 4m move to the Baggies was completed last week.

Speaking to the official West Brom website, Austin said: It was a project that I wanted to be a part of.

I have seen that the manager is here and with the staff and the players that he has brought in and the players that are already here it was something that as soon as the opportunity came that I jumped at.

It is a project that I want to be a part of and their goal this year is to get promotion and I want to be a part of that.

Many years ago you would see West Brom for what it is and you see now the new manager has come in and they are trying to turn it completely around.

New players have come in and with the squad they have already got here it only bodes well for the future."

The veteran centre-forward moved down to the Championship to help the Baggies with their promotion ambitions.

Many were surprised at the move and his willingness to leave the Premier League to pursue regular first team football.

Speaking to the official West Brom website, Austin said: "It was a project that I wanted to be a part of.

"I have seen that the manager is here and with the staff and the players that he has brought in and the players that are already here it was something that as soon as the opportunity came that I jumped at.

"New players have come in and with the squad they have already got here it only bodes well for the future.

"As a centre forward you are known for your goals, that is what it is. There was only one team that scored more than Albion last year.

"I have come here to play. There's no point saying that I haven't. I have come here to start and hit the ground running, score goals and help the lads and everyone involved with the club.

"It's all about me getting a run of games and I fully believe in myself, the manager has belief in me and I think when the time comes most of the lads will as well."

The Baggies have agreed a permanent deal for the attacker which is dependant on appearances and could be activated next summer.

Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling said: "Negotiations have been ongoing for three or four weeks and we're obviously delighted to have finally been able to bring in Matheus.

"He has natural flair but he went on loan (to Nuremberg) and experienced the football in the Bundesliga last year which showed a different side to his game.

"We hope he will be a player who can have a real effect on the team and one the fans will enjoy watching."

The Arsenal youth product joined Benfica last summer, signing a five-year contract.

However, he struggled to get first-team minutes last season and now moves to the Hawthorns.

"We've got a very good deal to bring him here for the season and Chris is excited at the opportunity," said Sporting and Technical director Luke Dowling.

"He's been looking to get back over here and Slaven enjoys working with and developing youngsters. It will be a brilliant shop window for him. He's an exciting forward player with the capacity to work in the wide or central areas."

<![CDATA[Ex-Liverpool defender Johnson slaughters Berahino: Not up to it; never tried]]> <p>Former England defender Glen Johnson has slaughtered former Stoke City teammate Saido Berahino on radio today.</p><p>Johnson played with Berahino for the Potters between 2017 and 2018 before the former Liverpool defender retired.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/ex-liverpool-defender-johnson-slaughters-berahino-not-up-to-it-never-tried-4292128?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BWest%2BBromwich%2BAlbion'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Former England defender Glen Johnson has slaughtered former Stoke City teammate Saido Berahino on radio today.

Johnson played with Berahino for the Potters between 2017 and 2018 before the former Liverpool defender retired.

Now Johnson, formerly of Chelsea and Liverpool, has revealed what Berahino, who was released from his contract on Wednesday by Stoke, was like to play with on a day-to-day basis.

Johnson told talkSPORT: "To be honest it's not so much what's gone wrong, it's quicker to say what's gone right. He had the wrong mentality and the wrong attitude from day one.

"I only know him from the days at Stoke, his days at West Brom, he had a few good months he was hitting the net regularly.

"For whatever reason when he was at Stoke he was always going against the grain. If we were told to be there [at training] at 10, he would turn up at 10 past 10.

"If we were told to wear this, he would deliberately wear something different. It was almost like he had a vendetta against them from the start.

"It was strange to watch really. In training you would see glimpses that he can play. There is something there but he didn't even want to push himself.

"If they wanted us to run faster he would go slower. I am not exaggerating, it would be the same every single day.

"If you were not in the squad, you would have to run after the game. Of course, no player likes doing it because they are angry you weren't playing in the first place.

"You might be running at half 10 at night on an evening or whatever. I understood why players were unhappy about it but that was the rules, but Saido would jog.

"We would supposed to be off on the following Sunday but because Saido didn't run everyone had to come in the next day, even the players that played the game.

"The next day, Saido called in sick. We were only there because of him and he didn't even turn up.

"It was uproar. Where do you go from that? It's total disrespect to the staff, the players.

"And that's what he was like on a daily basis. And considering they paid him with three years left to go tells you everything you know."

Asked if he liked Berahino as a person, Johnson said: "No. I will be brutally honest. I've played with people who might not be up to the level but they are nice and will work hard.

"He wasn't at the level and he didn't try. It's not happened once has it, it's happened throughout the career.

"He's 26, he should be having a big move right now. He's not played for England. There are reasons for it.

"Everyone pretty much says the same thing. If I was the manager or owner of a club I wouldn't take him if they paid me to play him."
