Vurnon Anita to Premier League

Amsterdam/Willemstad - Ajax coach Frank de Boer has confirmed the Amsterdam club have struck a deal with Newcastle United over the transfer of Vurnon Anita.

De Boer broke the news after naming Anita in the Ajax midfield for today's Dutch league clash with AZ Alkmaar - the 23-year-old's last match for the club before he is expected to join the Magpies.

The fee is expected to be £8million for the Curacao-born midfielder who has made over 100 league appearances for Ajax, helping De Boer's side to win the last two domestic titles in the Netherlands.

Anita will travel to Newcastle to undergo a medical next week and could be thrust straight into Alan Pardew's first-team for the opening game of the Premier League season against Tottenham.
