So far Newcastle United fans are yet to see Facundo Ferreyra make an appearance for the first team.

After eight months at St. James’ Park the nearest the Argentine striker has come to being sighted, is sitting on the bench watching three Premier League matches.

John Carver recently stated that Ferreyra should be back shortly after suffering from a bad back, though supporters are still sceptical as to whether they will ever see him in the flesh.

Though the player did claim in an interview in recent days that he was actually hoping to extend his stay at Newcastle!

Last night Jonas Gutierrez used his Twitter account to put out a photo of himself and his Argentine colleagues Fabricio Coloccini and Chucky Ferreyra out at a restaurant.

Comparing the image below to that at the top of this article, life on Tyneside appears to not only have transformed his football fortunes (for the worst), but he also looks like a completely different person!

With the image, Jonas also posted the following:

“With 2 great persons Coloccini and Chuky Ferreyra.”

They may well all be great people but it would be nice to get a glimpse of what Chucky is like as a player as well.
