The winger has played just two games for Newcastle this season and is not thought to be part of manager Alan Pardew’s long-term plans.

The 30-year-old was handed the last of his 22 caps for his country in October 2011 and looks unlikely to be heading to this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

Gutierrez, who generally plays on the left and has also been used as a full-back at times by Pardew, has played 195 games and scored 11 goals for the Magpies since joining from Mallorca in the summer of 2008.

National newspaper the Sunday People has reported the Canaries and Championship side QPR are both interested in signing Gutierrez.

The same newspaper also recently reported that Gutierrez is heading for the St James’ Park exit door because of a clause in his contract which would earn him a pay rise if he reaches a certain number of appearances.

His current contract is due to expire in the summer of 2015.

  • Ha! Brilliant point. Plays on the left so we'd obviously play him on the right lol!!! Great Banter. Its funny because its true, its actually what we would do! Take Redmond for example, its bad when the player says multiple times that he prefers to play on the right wing, then other players like hooper come out in the press and say they prefered having a right footed play cross from the right as its what a predator striker lives for. Then add the fact the fans can all see he's happier and more natural on the right it makes you wonder what goes on in Hughtons head. Yes some players (usually the wingers without pace) like to cut inside but they can become a one trick pony like Mr Snodgrass where any decent side will limit them knowing full well they dont have the pace to head to the line or even effectively cross on there weaker foot. On a serious subject based note, Jonas is a decent player with vast (and formerly regular) international experience but is he dramatically better than Pilks? One thing in favour of this rumour is the fact I firmly believe Hughton has had it with Pilks. Hes forever injured and I bet his Twitter rant about James Vaughans sale didnt go down well recently. Jonas joining could lead to Redmond firmly pushing Snodgrass for his place as lets be fair without direct competition Snodgrass has been less than impressive this season. Redmond as exciting as he is, is still learning and keen to play right wing. Makes sense to me.

  • Funnily enough our goal on Saturday came from a left foot cross from a left footed player (Murphy) playing on the left! Our other best chance on Saturday where Fulham's keeper made a 'Banks-like' save came from a cross from Garrido (errrrr left foot, left footed, left wing). There's a pattern here but I can't quite put my finger on it!

  • Agree about CH-Pilks thing; I think it's real. Still don't really see Gutierrez here though.

  • So he plays on the left at Newcastle, probably means we would play him on his weaker side down the right. We already have the wrong footed winger situation with cover at the club.

  • Yes but now that's the problem Double D, everyone will expect a left footed cross from the left wing. Let's cause confusion by having a right footed player on the left wing and a left footed player on the right wing. Nobody will expect that will they? Isn't Hoots a clever bunny?

  • The trouble with Pilks, Mattias, is that by the time he starts finding some form, he gets injured again, and apart from needing a manager who knows where the goal is, we could do with a sense of consistency in the team

  • I know it was only Watford, but I saw Redmond tear them apart down the right wing. Snodgrass is having a dreadful season and I would love Gutierrez here - a never say die player who gives his all.

  • Totally agree. thats basically the point I was trying to make. Do believe Hoots has had enough of Pilks. Dont get me wrong I like the lad but he spends more time injured, and the recent twitter rants at his thoughts on the club selling James Vaughan likely didnt go down well. Hughton isnt keen on injury plagued players. Pilks certainly falls into that field.

  • He looked good in that fantastic RCD side with Eto'o, Ibegaza, Nadal and the rest but he had one good season with Newcastle and that was it. No better than Olsson IMO - but Chrissy knows best, of course.

  • He did himself on radio norfolk and on his twitter. Add to the fact he always played there for birmingham and the under 21s and its safe to say he prefers it there lol! He did say he will always give his best though where ever hes selected whether its right wing, left or centre back. But just said he prefers to be a more traditional winger, head down, run at defenders and cross in on his right so that the ball curls away from the keeper and into the area predators like hooper (assume he means RVW to) thrieve off.
