Reports are out claiming that Jonas Gutierrez is preparing to return to Newcastle United.
The 31 year old Argentine international will return to training with Newcastle next month after his all-clear from testicular cancer.
United boss Alan Pardew has revealed that Gutierrez should be back on Tyneside in one month’s time.
“We had a response from his surgeon to say that in about a month’s time he can cope with professional training,” said Pardew.
“So we are not rushing him in any shape or form, just letting Jonas have some time because it’s such an illness that you do need a lot of recovery time for that.
“But he’s in great shape. Colo (Fabricio Coloccini) tells me he is in good form and we are looking forward to seeing him.
“It’s massive news for the squad because he is a much-loved figure here.”
