'Newcastle are a beautiful club' - Anita open to Magpies move

Ajax's Vurnon Anita has revealed that he would be interested in a transfer to Newcastle United this summer.

The Premier League side recently had a first offer for the Netherlands international midfielder turned down by the Amsterdam giants, but Anita has not given up hope of a move just yet.

"Newcastle are a beautiful club. I'm open to anything. We'll see what happens, but there's nothing wrong with listening to Ajax and what interested clubs have to say," Anita was quoted as saying by Ajax Life.

"I will seriously consider anything that comes up. Does it matter to me that Newcastle are not in the Champions League? No.

"However, I'm an Ajax player for now. I'm focusing on Ajax. Newcastle's interest has made me think about a potential transfer, though. It's a sign that I'm on the right track and have to keep this up. I haven't set a deadline for when I want clarity. I'll just see how this pans out."

The 23-year-old has a contract with Ajax until June 2014.
