Newcastle agree Ajax terms over Anita fee

Newcastle United have a deal with Ajax for Vurnon Anita.

The Magpies have been chasing Anita for most of the summer, but whilst they have endured frustration with a number of targets in the past few weeks - they now look to be close to finalising one.

Anita, 23, who can play left-back or in midfield, is now set to make his farewell appearance for Ajax on Sunday - when they open their league campaign against AZ Alkmaar.

Reports in Holland suggest the deal is around €8million (£6.2million), although the player is yet to finalise terms.

He is likely to fly to England on Monday to undergo a medical ahead of completing a move to Tyneside.
