Leeds United have signed midfielder Vurnon Anita on a three-year deal following his release by Newcastle.

The 28-year-old, capped four times by the Netherlands, featured in 27 league games last season to help the Magpies win the Championship title.

Anita is Leeds' fourth signing of this transfer window, after deals for Felix Wiedwald, Mateusz Klich and Hadi Sacko.
