Pards holds cards for Anita move

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ALAN PARDEW holds the key to push­ing through New­cas­tle’s £6mil­lion move for Vurnon Anita.

Toon have agreed a fee with Ajax for the 23-yearold util­ity man, who is due on Ty­ne­side to dis­cuss per­sonal terms.

The five-year deal is worth up to £10m af­ter he snubbed a lu­cra­tive new con­tract of­fer from the Dutch giants.

Vurnon is keen to play in a cen­tral mid­field role, and wants talks with the Toon boss be­fore sign­ing.

Vurnon’s fa­ther said: “The clubs are agreed on a fee, but we’re not sure yet about the move.

“He wants to know what his plans are. Does he want Vurnon for right­back, or for left-back? Or in mid­field?

“These are im­por­tant ques­tions for Vurnon. He needs an­swers to these ques­tions.”

UN­SURE: Anita
