Jonas Gutierrez has moved to Norwich, but it’s only on loan until the end of the season, when Norwich will have the option of signing the Argentine International for a fee of £3M.
Jonas Gutierrez in action for Newcastle
Jonas has lots of experience and can play in multiple different positions, so he could be a good acquisition for Norwich City and he joins his former manager at Newcastle – Chris Hughton.
This is what Chris said about the loan signing:
“So I think he will bring a lot of experience and quality to our squad, not to mention flexibility.” “He has a great work ethic and he can play in several different positions, including fullback.”
“He can easily play in three different positions in midfield, although he is predominantly a wide player.” “He is a good individual as well though, very much a team player and he is a very hard worker.”
Gutierrez had sent tweets out over the weekend suggesting he was leaving Newcastle for good, and so we thought some deal was very close, but the surprise is that it’s only a loan move – at least at first.
Jonas had this to say:
“I’m just happy to be here. I want to win my place and then do my best for the team.”
We expect Jonas to do very well at Norwich, and the chances are very good that Norwich will follow through with his permanent singing in the summer.
£3M is not a bad fee for Newcastle to receive for the 30 year-old, who has been squeezed out on Tyneside this season.
