Anita started the season in good form and was started regularly, but he was dropped for the win at Cardiff - with Yohan Cabaye and Cheick Tiote back in favour.

Anita was then left out of Holland's squad for their World Cup qualifiers over the next week and he admits it is a concern.

"I would love to get to the World Cup but I have to take it step by step and my first priority is for my club," said Anita.

"I need to play well to get into the national team. I really hope I can regain my place in the Netherlands squad.

"I think they are looking at everyone and if you play a lot of football and perform well, you will get selected, but first things first and Newcastle are my priority.

"If I do well, it benefits everyone, team and myself too. But yes, of course, I want to play in the World Cup - and this is a good start."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
