Ajax midfielder Vurnon Anita says he will "seriously consider" any interest from the Premier League, but is prepared to stay with the Dutch champions.

Vurnon Anita: Linked with Newcastle and Sunderland

Sunderland and Newcastle are both reportedly weighing up a move to bring the 23-year-old to England this summer.

Anita, who has been valued at up to £12million, still has two years remaining on his contract at the Amsterdam ArenA, and Ajax want to keep him ahead of their Champions League campaign.

However, Anita is keen to play in the Premier League and is prepared to listen to any interest in his services.

"I am going to seriously consider any interest and will discuss it with my parents," Anita told the Dutch media.

"The Premier League is a top competition where I would want to play.

"Ajax say they won't let me go, and I'm tied up here until 2014. It would be no punishment to stay, but you never know."
