The 28-year-old has moved on a three-year deal following his release by the Magpies.

Anita made 155 appearances for Newcastle after signing from Ajax in July 2012.

He played 27 league games for the Championship-winning club last season and has been capped four times by the Netherlands.

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