Jonas Gutierrez Newcastle winger being treated for testicular cancer

Newcastle midfielder Jonas Gutierrez has thanked fans for their support after revealing he is being treated for testicular cancer.

The 31-year-old had an operation in his native Argentina to remove his left testicle after the discovery of a tumour, and is undergoing chemotherapy.

"Thanks for all the messages. Always looking forward," he wrote on Twitter. 

Gutierrez, who was on loan at Norwich last season, has scored 10 goals in 177 league appearances for the Magpies.
