Decision time: Gutierrez
Jonas Gutierrez will concentrate on Argentina's forthcoming World Cup qualifiers before considering his Newcastle future.
The Magpies were relegated from the Premier League after a 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa with Jonas, signed from Mallorca last summer, one of the few success stories of the season.
The winger will look at his future after the qualifiers next month as Argentina, who lie fourth in the South American qualifying zone, must beat Colombia and Ecuador in order to have a more comfortable position in the standings.
Jonas, a member of the Argentina's 26-man squad, told TyC Sports cable channel: 'Right now, the main thing is the national team. I want to make my contribution to the team, be with the guys and I hope I can play.
'Once the qualifiers pass, we'll see what will happen with my future.'
