Newcastle United have made a bid for Ajax midfielder Vurnon Anita, according to the player's agent.
The 23-year-old midfielder was part of of the Ajax side that won the Dutch title this season.
But, it is not known how Frank De Boer's side will react to the offer from Newcastle.
Magpies boss Alan Pardew is believed to have watched Anita in action on several occasions and the player's representative, Harry Lulofs, claims Newcastle have tabled an offer to Ajax for the defensive midfielder.
"Ajax are very satisfied with Anita and want to keep him, but Newcastle really want to sign him and have made a proper offer," Lulofs told Sky Tyne and Wear.
"I know Newcastle very well and have dealt with them before, they are very serious about signing Vurnon.
"He has two years left on his contract and he'd like to play in the Premier League."
