Vurnon Anita

Position:
Defensive Midfielder
Date signed:
16th August 2012

A diminutive Dutch international with a big personality, versatile Vurnon is just at home in the centre of the park as he is at full-back.

Born in the Caribbean island nation of Curaçao (formerly the Netherlands Antilles), Vurnon moved to Holland with his family in 1997 and he joined local side VV Maarssen.

After being scouted by the the world-famous Ajax Academy in 1999, he progressed through the ranks at the Amsterdam club and made his senior debut in 2006 - eventually earning his first full international cap in May 2010.

After lifting the Eredivisie title under Frank de Boer in May 2012, Vurnon made the switch from the Amsterdam Arena to St. James’ Park that summer and he made his debut for the Magpies in a 2-1 win against Tottenham in the Premier League.
