The Holland international confirmed earlier this week the Magpies had struck a deal with the Eredivisie champions to bring him to St James' Park.

The 23-year-old, who can play at left-back or in midfield, has been on Alan Pardew's radar for much of the summer and Ajax were reluctant to sell.

But it now appears Anita is closing on a move to Tyneside as Sky Sports understands he has arrived in the North East for a medical.

The Dutchman is reportedly set to sign a five-year contract with the Magpies, who he claims will pay Ajax a fixed fee of ?8.5million (?6.7m), plus bonuses.

Should the medical run smoothly the transfer could be finalised in the coming days.
