Newcastle boss Hughton: Jonas no right-back

Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton doesn't regard Jonas Gutierrez as a right-back.

Diego Maradona has played Jonas at fullback for Argentina at the World Cup.

But Hughton told the Evening Chronicle: "I have not considered him there, but I know it a position which at certain stages Jonas can drop into as he is good at the defensive side of the game.

"However, it is not a position for which I will be considering him."
