The midfielder made his debut in victory over Tottenham.
Anita told the Sunday Sun: “The player I admire the most in the world is Xavi from Barcelona. I also admire Andreas Iniesta.
“They are like me in that they not so tall, but they can play very, very good football and I love to watch them on television.
“Footballers these days tend to be big, which is something I am not. I can’t help that.
“So this is why I look up to Xavi who is one of the best players in the world. The way he plays football is special.
“This is how I want to play my football. I like to pass the ball, play one-twos, move well and create chances for my team-mates.
“This is what Dutch football is famous for. So I hope to bring these talents here to Newcastle and do well here.”
