Aston Villa threaten Newcastle plans for Ajax's Anita

Aston Villa are threatening Newcastle United plans to land Ajax midfielder Vurnon Anita.

The Sun says Toon boss Alan Pardew has been told to double his £4million bid for Anita — or forget it.

Ajax manager Ronald De Boer values Anita, 23, who has three Holland caps, at £8m and will not sell for less.

De Boer knows that Toon are not Anita’s only admirers.

New Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has also been tracking the midfield tough-guy.
