Vurnon Anita joined Leeds United on a free transfer from Newcastle United in the summer of 2017.

The versatile Dutch international who can play in midfield or at full-back, joined the Whites on the back of helping the Magpies to win promotion from the Sky Bet Championship to the Premier League, featuring 27 times during the league campaign.

Anita made his breakthrough with Dutch giants Ajax, for whom he made over 100 appearances, before joining Newcastle for a fee close to £7m in 2012.

Capped four times by the Netherlands, Anita will be hoping for a second successive promotion with the Whites come the end of the 2017/18 season.
