Acquaint yourself with Spiderman
Name Jonas Gutierrez
Age 24 (25 on Saturday)
Club history VÃ©lez SÃ¡rsfield, Real Mallorca, Newcastle United (current)
Is he any good? The speedy wideman has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now. Arsenal, Portsmouth and Manchester City have shown varying degrees of interest in Gutierrez, which suggests he has got what it takes. He won his first cap for Argentina in 2007 but was forced to wait until last month for his second. His involvement in the match against Brazil suggests he is back to his best.
Wiki fact! “He often celebrates his goals by putting on a Spider-Man mask on and pretending to shoot webs.”
In his own words “I cannot tell you how excited I am to be joining Newcastle United. The Premier League is a great place to play and I cannot wait to meet my new team-mates and prove myself to the Newcastle United fans.”
Pies verdict It was only going to be a matter of time before Kevin Keegan brought an out-and-out winger to St James’ Park. And if Arsene Wenger, Harry Redknapp and Sven Goran Eriksson all thought he was worth a punt, then who are we to argue.
Have your say…
