Common xlabel and ylabel in a subplot of a subplot

Hello,
I would like to obtain a figure of (for example) 2 by 2 subplot, but with the last figure being another 2 by 2 subplot. If possible, I would like to use tiledlayout and nexttile, since I can edit the space between the figures.
My problem is that I would like to specify the xlabel and ylabel differently for the 3 bigger graphs and one general xlabel and ylabel for the smaller subplot (see the example in attachment and below).
In a basic example, I am almost able to achieve my goal, but I don't know how to set the last x and y labels for the smaller subplot.
x=sin(linspace(1,10)); % Set randomly for the example.
figure(1); t=tiledlayout(4,4,'TileSpacing','normal','Padding','compact');
nexttile([2,2])
plot(x); xlabel('x'); ylabel('y');
nexttile([2,2])
plot(x); xlabel('x'); ylabel('y');
nexttile([2,2])
plot(x); xlabel('x'); ylabel('y');
% How to set global xlabel and ylabel for the remaining 4 graphs?
ax1 = nexttile;
plot(x)
ax2 = nexttile;
plot(x)
ax3 = nexttile;
plot(x)
ax4 = nexttile;
plot(x)
Thank you in advance for your help!

xlabel([ax3 ax4],'x'); ylabel([ax1 ax3],'y')
do you mean this ?

Hi, thank you for your answer.
This could work, but I had in mind a common 'x' and 'y' for the small quadrant. Something like:
If nothing comes to mind, I will use your example!
