The agent of Dutch player Anita claims Newcastle have made a written bid for the Ajax star.
Agent Harry Lulofs said: â€œNewcastle have made an offer between Â£5m and Â£10m. Ajax have received a written offer.
â€œThey are satisfied with Vurnon and want to keep him. Newcastle have been watching him for a long time and really want to sign him. The only other Premier League club to get in touch was Norwich. Paul Lambert called me to ask about him.
â€œNow he has moved to Aston Villa, so maybe they will be in touch.â€™â€™
