NEWCASTLE United’s Jonas Gutierrez is in talks over a move to former club Velez Sarsfield.

The popular winger is understood to be in discussions over a move to the club in his native Argentina.

Gutierrez – who trained with Velez after completing his chemotherapy – had hoped to make an emotional comeback for Newcastle.

Speaking last month, the 31-year-old said: “I have played in a World Cup, but if I play again for Newcastle then that will be the best moment of my career.”

However, Gutierrez’s six-year career at St James’s Park looks to be all but over, though an agreement is yet to be reached.

The Argentinian transfer window closes this week.
