​Defender Anita wants to stay with Newcastle

Vurnon Anita is delighted with Newcastle's promotion back into the Premier League and would like to stay at St James' Park.

The 28-year-old Dutchman said: "Everybody worked for each other and fought for the club. It's been beautiful to see this season.

"You always have to work to the end and so everybody could see with those final scenes. The emotion was there for all to see. It is a great thing for the city and the club.

"I have a medal for my collection, it's all good. I can sit back and reflect now. I can enjoy vacation and hopefully come back."

He admits he does not know yet what the future may hold for him, but having played his part in both the Magpies' relegation and their subsequent fightback, he is keen to have a role in the latest chapter of the saga.

Asked if he hoped to stay, Anita said: "Of course, but it's not up to me. I am open to everything. I will see what happens.

"If the group stays together it's a beautiful thing, but in football you never know what happens.

"Hopefully we can stay together and then work for next season."
