Newcastle Could End Their Interest In Dutch International


The Ajax Technical Director has today said that their full back/midfielder Vernon Anita will not be joining Newcastle United, unless the Tyneside club make an improved offer.

Vernun Anita – 23 year-old Dutch International

There was news a couple of weeks ago that Newcastle had a €5M offer rejected by Ajax for the Dutch International, who can play left full back,  and last season played as a defensive midfielder for the Dutch Champions.

The Ajax Technical Director Wim Jonk now says the player will not be leaving the Dutch club unless their valuation is met, and if that’s the case maybe the player will not be coming to Newcastle.

There have been no new offers for Anita since the first Newcastle bid, and Jonk has made a statements today, probably because he would like Newcastle to come back with an imporved offer, but we wouldn’t bet on it.

This is what Wim Jonk said:

“We have not received another offer,” “Therefore, Anita will not be leaving us.” “We will not negotiate, unless Newcastle comes with a better bid.”

“Right now, there isn’t any contact, but that’s normal for English clubs, who are always very late with their transfers.”

Norwich City and Aston Villa are two other clubs who may be interested in the 23 year-old, but that’s because Paul Lambert is interested in the player, and we don’t know the real extent of Villa’s interest.

Ajax have told Newcastle to double their offer to €10M (£8M) for Anita, but we doubt the Tyneside club will do that, and there could be a deal somewhere between €5M and €10M – maybe.

Certainly Newcastle need to bring in a new central midfielder, who will be a replacement for Danny Guthrie, who is now a free agent and will not be staying on Tyneside.

Newcastle very rarely go in with much of an improved offer following their first bid for a player, and it could be there is better value elsewhere.

And if that’s the case, it could signal the end of any interest in Vernun Anita coming from Newcastle.

What do you think?

    I might be wrong thinking about it. Could have been the season before when we beat them at their place 4-3 in the cup. He got fouled. Legs taken from under him. Very clear cut.

    I think they are willing to sell him to us, as the player wants tojoin NUFC. I think 5M Pounds will make it happen. As for De Jong i believe we are strongy interested and if we are, board make it happen, they won’t overspend but we will have that striker for a bit short of 10M Pounds. And Debouchy will not miss the chance to join Cabaye and we will not pay more that 6.5 for him – it’s a fair price. Demba will probalby leave as also Best, Ranger and Loverkrands, so another striker is a must. What do you think of gameiro we had 10M pounds accepted (we bid that much very very very rarely) for him last year, so if we can get him for 6M, why not? I know his wages are high, but what’s not a problem i guess, would you do: take a pay cut a bit and play in a best football leage in the world, get bigger international recognision, play in fron of 50K supporters, play in European competition , or stay at PSG there the manager don’t want you, sit on the bench, ruin your carrier and end your international abitions? if i can see it, if think he can as well. He isn’t that stupid, right? Also we were linked with that guidetti kid, very impresive scoring record, i’m wondering what the price will do for city? And that spainiards from Real reserves, Morata.. he is not bad at all as well, so if we can take two of the striekrs what will they would be for you? I would take De Jong and Gameiro probaly.
