Like Van der Wiel, Anita is angling for a contract with RKC Waalwijk

After Gregory van der Wiel, RKC Waalwijk has a former international and ex-Ajacied. Vurnon Anita has signed a contract for a season with the Waalwijkers.

“It has been hanging in the air for a while, but we are happy that we can definitely add Vurnon to our selection”, says general director Frank van Mosselveld on the club’s website. “His qualities are beyond dispute. With his experience and playing insight he will be of added value to us”

The 31-year-old Anita made her debut in professional football at Ajax in 2006, where he played together with Van der Wiel until he made the switch to Newcastle United in 2012. After that, the triple international played for Leeds United, Willem II and the Bulgarian CSKA Sofia, where he was only under contract for the first few months of this year.
