It looks like Newcastle midfielder Jonas Gutierrez will be leaving Newcastle in the very near future, and there’s a possibility he could be joining his former boss Chris Hughton at Norwich City.
Jonas Gutierrez – on his way out of Newcastle?
Two clubs have expressed an interest in the Argentine International, who started the first game at Manchester City this season, but was injured and has since made only one substitute appearance – in the 2-1 win at Cardiff City.
Harry Redknapp’s QPR are the other club who have been interested in signing the 30 year-old 21 times Argentine International.
Jonas has put these tweets out on his Twitter account today, which look like he’s on his way out of Tyneside:
“Thank you mate. It was an honor and a pleasure to play with the Newcastle shirt and to have the support of the Geordie.”
“Thanks for the messages. I enjoy my 5 years at the club, I hope the club finish the highest this season and the best to my team mates.”
Jonas joined Newcastle in August of 2008, and even though the club were relegated in his first season on Tyneside, he stayed with the club and helped Newcastle get straight back to the Premier League the next season.
Jonas played 194 times for Newcastle and scored 11 goals since joining Newcastle from Real Mallorca, and there have been rumors that if he reached a certain number of appearances for the club – though to be 200 – then Newcastle would have to give him a new contract – although we don’t know if those reports are accurate.
The Argentine always gave his very best for Newcastle United in his five and a half years on Tyneside, and we assume some announcement on which club he will be joining will be made by Newcastle.
We wish Jonas all the best for the future.
