Newcastle Winger On His Way Out Of The Club

12:03 am, Sunday, January 12th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 37 Comments

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.

    Not the best player in the world but always a model pro and one that always played with his heart on his sleeve. Thanks for all the hard graft Jonas and good luck wherever you end up.

  • 2 OhSholaAmeobi // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:08 AM

    Did an awful lot for the club when we went down. Particular good to watch in the championship and the first premier league season back. But at the end of the day he’s 30 and the only way to progress is to bring in squad players as good as the first team. 22 purples please.

  • 3 G // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:09 AM

    Its a shame he didn’t have much in the way of an end product, but I think he’s been a good solid player for us. Good luck wherever you end up mate.

    @ Jimmy

    Football transfers are a gamble m8 and it is up to the likes of Carr to turn the odds in our favour .

    Say De Jong comes here for a year and nets 20 goals or plays really well, You think his parent club won’t either :

    A) Ask for more money for a permenant deal .

    B) Keep him .

    Look no further than Remy for proof . We could have probably bought him outright from QPR when they were relegated for under £10 million, plus he had shown he can score in the PL . Now they want £15 mill for him and it looks like he will be gone as soon as his year with us is over.

  • 5 Graeme // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:11 AM

    Not before time. He ceased to be an effective player about 18 months ago. Yes, he runs up and down a lot, but then generally falls over, no end product. He would be better of out of toon, use the proceeds for new player(s) – we can but pray!!

  • 6 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:12 AM

    Once Guti’s legs went he became very inefective as a Premier League winger . Yes he was ok to babysit Santon or play as a DM but someone else could have his place on the bench .

  • 7 Mister Tuff // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:16 AM

    I think the Jonas transfer will be cancelled. He has clearly breached a club protocol in publicising an apparent move before the club has made a formal announcement. This is serious stuff – -he should know the rules.

  • 8 shearer and the duchess // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:20 AM

    That fellow, Mr Gutierez deserves a bloody good send off by us chaps.
    I always thought he was overrated from day 2.
    Day 1 when he made his debut away to my old team Manchester United he was spiffing marvellous. The bloody rotter failed to deliver after that.
    No end product was his problem. That bloody Spider-Man mask was a rare sight.
    Over the last season or so he seemed to have been over indulging on that local delicassy, the stottie.

    Having said all that, he has given everything for the cause. A bloody solid professional. I don’t believe he is good enough to get back in the first team so therefore I would wish him well if he moved on.

    His bloody wife is a real sort. I wouldn’t mind slapping her buttocks with my balls.

  • 9 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:21 AM

    @ tuff

    How long is left on his contract ? . Maybe he is retiring .

  • 10 OhSholaAmeobi // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:23 AM

    Pardew mentioned Marveaux has a role to play – Jonas seemingly off and rumours of Squidward to be moved out after taking a hissy fit when not named on the bench.
    Even with only 18 premier league games to play, the squad is weaker without 2 wingers. It’s awful when our game-changing bench consists of Shola, Obertan, Sammy & Cisse.
    Surely we’re buying a winger in this transfer window, if not a striker. I don’t have faith, but whenever we have bought it has been when least expected (last 2 januarys) so i’m keeping an open mind.

  • 11 Black and White with an army lol // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:26 AM

    Big Pappa Cissé@4

    it all depends on what the loan deal is though mate there could be a buy out clause with the deal like the Remy deal which has me thinking why are QPR asking for 15-16 million for Remy when in the loan deal he has a 6 million buy out clause?

  • 12 OhSholaAmeobi // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:31 AM

    Black and White
    He’s 27 years old with a rape case looming. What if it happened? Not that i’m saying it did, i’d like to think it didn’t. Think about it, would you employ someone with that hanging over them? Football’s crazy.
    Basically it wouldn’t surprise me if there wasn’t a buy out clause, it’s not required in england and QPR’s chairman wanted to keep him. Plus it made for a very cheap summer.

  • 13 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:32 AM

    @ black & white

    But that is the problem when the player is still technically not your player as the parent club holds all the cards and they can have their own clauses reguardless if he has a so called £6 million bhy out clause .

    For all we know there could be a clause that if he scores double figures his value increases to £15 million and why Redknapp is suddenly asking for top doller ? .

  • 14 Brutooon // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:32 AM

    1) he got one of the best debut against man utd. very hardworking

    2) thank him for staying with us during the championship season

    3) a good PERSON

    4) Part of the unbeatoon team two seasons ago

    5) Didn’t perform last season plus now he is ageing – RIGHT move by AP to get rid of him and replace with a young player

  • 15 santonthenewmaldini // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:33 AM

    Goodbye Jonas you gave your all for us but I think its time for both parties to move on !

    If we can get a transfer fee for him and get his wages off the bill we could possibly afford to bring in other players if we got rid of Obertan as well and upgraded them both then that would be very happy days !!

    Just a bit worried we are going to get smashed tomorrow typical that our next games are against West Ham who have just won and have Carroll back and a flying Sunderland!

    We need to sign players or I fear our season is just going to fade away with a few signings we could still challenge for Europe

    Lets sign the De Jong Brothers

    Ince

    Cabella on a pre deal for Cabaye’s departure

  • 16 Mister Tuff // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:36 AM

    bpc – come on -wake up – it was a joke – club ban NUST for breaching protocol in publishing minutes before them. Jonas announces move before the club.

  • 17 Marty-Toon // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:39 AM

    Good transfer news if true,it actually will be like a new signing.
    Far too often did nothing but huff n puff
    Best of luck Jonas

  • 18 Big Pappa Cissé // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:44 AM

    @ tuff

    I know it was a joke, but if he is retiring rather than going to another club then the club won’t be to bothered .

    This looks like good news as far as transfers go as I doubt we would let a senior player like Jonas leave without bringing someone else in.

  • 19 Jail for Ashley // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:53 AM

    SatD,
    A great book for your type would be by Tom Sharpe, and it’s called vintage stuff, good read and reminds me of your posts !

  • 20 MadisonToon // Jan 12, 2014 at 1:04 AM

    This allows us to have another non-homegrown player purchased this month who goes straight into the squad. I think we maybe have one extra spot, but we are certainly toeing the line of the homegrown rule.

    It’s also a positive (if it happens) as JFK/Pardew have probably been told that we must offload before we can bring anyone in…the sooner we let go of the players who will leave this window, the more time we have to do our wheeling and dealing to get the right price for MA before the window closes.

  • 21 Toon1978 // Jan 12, 2014 at 1:09 AM

    Loan deals zzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • 22 Mister Tuff // Jan 12, 2014 at 2:14 AM

    bpc @18 – I see -surely he must be transferring -he does have a bit of lfe left in him still. As you suggest -it might indicate movement into the club. I think there will be a couple of signings -players who are ready for the team now and not some unknown player. Probably de Jong on loan -he would be ok -but I do not like loannees.

  • 23 Our Toon // Jan 12, 2014 at 2:30 AM

    Good solid pro who always gave it his all, tireless worker and very much a team player, I would personally play him ahead of Obertan any day, 2 things here though which strike me as odd:

    1) As footy fans we always go on about loyalty but where is the loyalty we are showing to both Marv and Gutierriez? Surely these 2 are better than Obertan!!

    2) Once Percy’s favourite player, does anyone else find it disturbing that he slated the training methods of last season and has never played a game again? Yet prior to his statement where he slated training methods he was the first name on the team sheet for Percy!!

  • 24 Sav // Jan 12, 2014 at 3:11 AM

    A good player and a great lad. Guti played with a smile and did a decent job wherever asked to play. Didn’t get to see half enough of the Spidey mask but it had been down his shorts so long perhaps its just as well he didn’t wave it about too much. I can think of a helluva lot of wingers we’ve had who have not made anything like his contribution. Along with Colo he has done a lot for my view of S.American players on Tyneside.

  • 25 Sav // Jan 12, 2014 at 3:13 AM

    I see Puncheon sent the keeper the wrong way…

  • 26 Benji84 // Jan 12, 2014 at 4:44 AM

    to bit fair he is a hard worker and does put his heart in every game but to be honest in the last 2 years his form has dipped at lot. Glad he is going somewhere he can get game time and move on. Thanks for the good times and hope things move well

  • 27 Blofal // Jan 12, 2014 at 4:54 AM

    We are being linked now with Siem De Jong. If we could bring them both here I’d be pretty happy.

    Still expect us to sign noone though.

  • 28 JP...from The Rock // Jan 12, 2014 at 5:36 AM

    “though to be 200″ – Ed you REALLY LOVE the word ‘ though’ don’t you? It should have been thought, notice the ‘t’. It’s so frustrating to see the same basic spelling mistake in every article you put up. Besides that flaw you have I love the blog. I really do.

    Jonas, thanks but your time here is up. We needed more goals from him and sadly they never came, thank you for your great effort and service spidey.

  • 29 jazzyp // Jan 12, 2014 at 6:10 AM

    As said before a good solid pro, But time to part company I think.I wish you all the best gutti whatever your future endeavours may be.
    I wonder if we are starting to make head way in the transfer market by offloading first as it looks like Cisse is on his way to Qatar for a mega bucks move.The only stumbling block is the transfer fee as nufc want to recoup most of the 9 mill we paid for his services .
    Cisse-Gutti-Marvs-Obertan should bring in around £15 mil which would buy Siem de jong and Cabella as well as younger brother luuk coming in on loan and I would say that it would be classed as successful January transfer window with no actual outlay.Yet strengthening the team considerably

  • 30 pottsclock // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:36 AM

    I have certainly liked Jonas for his hard work on the pitch and hos professionalism – he’s never shown anything but the upmost respect for the club and fans.
    However, he is only a first team possibility now if we have injuries and therefore he’s not adding much to the squad. Gouffy is way ahead.
    Good luck to him and let’s use the funds towards the players we need.

  • 31 yorkymag // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:39 AM

    Good luck to Jonas
    I know he has had a poor couple of seasons as age caught up
    But I will remember him with fondness for the way he buckled down and played a massive part in the promotion season in the championship,many said not for me Jonas said bring it on ,a real gent .
    It would be nice if he could be presented today and let the faithfull say thanks
    Thanks for the memories and good luck I say

  • 32 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:44 AM

    If Jonas is leaving could he please take obertan with him…

    …seriously though we will a very good replacement – Jonas has played alot of games for us in his career.

  • 33 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:52 AM

    *need

  • 34 jesperfuglsang - captain of the lemon crew // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:56 AM

    To all of you we are being linked with alot of players!

    …doesn’t mean anything until there id something formal and concrete on the table. Until then it is just yet another rumor!

  • 35 shearer and the duchess // Jan 12, 2014 at 7:56 AM

    Mr JFA

    I do not know whether to take that as a compliment my good fellow or or an attempt to try and humiliate me in front of the new bit posh totty that I am actively pursuing , that spanker of a fitness coach Miss Faye Downey.

    I have enough trouble try to stop that rotter Mr Pardew from hanging out of her.

    Come one Mr JFA, form an orderly queue. No doubt that dastardly Mr Tsunki will be sniffing round shortly.

  • 36 toonarmydownsouth // Jan 12, 2014 at 8:15 AM

    Been a great player for us and a a great servant to the club, cut jonas and the lad bleeds black and white!
    Good luck Jonas where ever you end up

  • 37 bringbackemre // Jan 12, 2014 at 12:47 PM

    Sad to see him leave was a great player a year or two ago and deleivered some great memorable moments and indivual perfromancs over the years and always put the team first .
