Gutierrez commits future to Newcastle

Jonas Gutierrez has signed a contract extension at Newcastle, which will keep him at the club until 2015.

The Argentina international has penned a new four year deal, with the Tyneside outfit eager to keep the South American at St James’ Park.

With two years remaining on his deal, The Magpies have moved quickly to prevent the winger from leaving, and boss Alan Pardew is glad to have tied him down for two additional seasons.

“Jonas is an integral part of the future of Newcastle United and we are delighted to have signed a new contract with him,” he told the club’s official website.

“As a seasoned international player, he adds a different dimension to our play when he is on the field and is a huge asset to us. Jonas can turn a game in an instant, he has marvellous ball skills, a terrific work rate and in my time here, has hardly missed a game.

“That’s the sort of consistency, fitness and performance wise, that a manager looks for in a player,” he concluded.

Gutierrez has been a mainstay in the starting XI since signing from Real Mallorca back in 2008, and is happy with his new contract.

“I’ve said many times that I love playing for Newcastle. I love the city, the fans and the team.

“So I had no hesitation in signing a new contract. It has been a good start to the season and this is a great place to be. I am proud that the manager and the board see me as part of the long-term future of Newcastle. I have always given my best here and I will always do that,” he concluded.
