Jonas Gutierrez's Newcastle career looks to be over after the midfielder claimed manager Alan Pardew told him he has no future with the club.

The Argentinian has joined Norwich until the end of the season, having lost his place after five years as a regular at St James' Park.

He has made just two appearances this season and admits he is at a loss as to why he has been left out by Pardew.

"The manager told me in December I was not going to play any more and told me to find myself another club," he told several national newspapers.

"I don't know why it happened and I still don't understand what I did wrong.

"There were no rows with Alan Pardew or anything like that. He just said I needed to leave and that was that.

"I honestly don't know why I wasn't playing, you will have to ask the manager that.

"He just made his decision and that was it. Something must have happened - but I don't know what."
