Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez is eyeing a move to Italy - long-term.

Gutierrez is looking forward to a fourth season in English football, having arrived at Newcastle from Real Mallorca in 2008.

He said: "I am very happy here and prefer the Premier League to Spain.

"But I would love to play in Italy and if I get the opportunity in the future, I would want to try it.

"It would be great to go back to Argentina in a few years and say I have played in the three best leagues in the world.

"But I am 27 and have not really got my career mapped out. That is something for the future ."
