Vurnon Anita is delighted with his move to Newcastle United.

The Dutchman can play in defence but has been brought in primarily to operate in central midfield and he is confident he can enjoy success with the Magpies.

"I won almost everything in Holland so the step was not difficult to make," Anita, who came through the Ajax youth system and has won the Dutch title with them in each of the last two seasons, told Newcastle's official website.

"Now I think we can also win trophies with Newcastle and it's time to do that."
