Can the ADF4351 be used as a digital phase-locked loop to achieve bit synchronization?

The ADF4351 integrates a VCO oscillator. Can a digital phase-locked loop be formed if an external loop filter and an external reference clock frequency are combined? If not, is it because there is no phase detector inside the ADF4351, should I use it with ADF4002 if I want to build a digital phase-locked loop? Can bit synchronization be achieved?
Here is the parameter article of ADF4351 for your reference. ... ves?id=437
