Ajax defender Vurnon Anita says that he has received a contract offer from Newcastle United after the two clubs agreed fee.

Dutch international Vurnon Anita has confirmed that Ajax have accepted an offer from Newcastle United for his services.

Alan Pardew has been chasing the versatile 23-year-old for much of the summer and will now discuss personal terms with Anita, who can play at full-back or in midfield.

Anita told reporters following Ajax's 2-2 draw with AZ Alkmaar: "The clubs have a deal, I think £6.6m. Now I have to reach an agreement with Newcastle, I have an offer, but I cant say more about this.

"The clubs have agreed a fee, but I have not. I'm still an Ajax player. I think it will be finished soon, but you never know how it will go.

"Now it's up to me. But first I want to talk with the manager of Newcastle United before taking a decision. The whole picture has to be right for me."

Anita's signature would represent Newcastle's biggest transfer fee of the summer after failed attempts to sign Lille defender Mathieu Debuchy.
