NORWICH, England -- Former Argentina midfielder Jonas Gutierrez was sent on loan to Norwich for the rest of the season on Monday after losing his starting place at fellow Premier League side Newcastle.

The 30-year-old Gutierrez last played for Newcastle on Oct. 5 against Cardiff, one of only two appearances in the first team this season.

"It is an opportunity for me to get back in the game," said Gutierrez, who won the last of his 22 caps for Argentina at the 2010 World Cup.

Gutierrez joined Newcastle in 2008 from Spanish side Real Mallorca and played under Chris Hughton, the current Norwich manager, at St. James' Park between June 2009 and December 2010.

"He's been in England for five years, so there won't be that settling-in period that you would have with some other players," Hughton said. "That's important, particularly in January when you need players that can go straight into the squad."

Norwich is 15th in the Premier League, two points above relegation zone, after failing to win any of its last six games.
