Heitinga Deal Completed

Heitinga Deal Completed

John Heitinga will become Everton's fourth signing of the summer after a deal was finalised to bring the Dutch international to Goodison Park.

Everton and Atletico Madrid agreed a £6m transfer fee, which could rise to £7m, for the 25-year old defender late last week whilst personal terms were tied up over the Bank Holiday weekend.

>Heitinga Player Profile

Heitinga has signed a five year deal after passing a medical examination and brings experience of playing at the highest level to Merseyside when he arrives back at Everton after the international break.

Blues boss David Moyes told evertonfc.com he was delighted to have Heitinga on board.

"We are really pleased to have him with us," said Moyes. "He is an experienced and versatile player who can hopefully fill a number of different positions in the team. I am sure he will be an exciting signing for us."

Heitinga arrives in the Premier League as one of Holland's most experienced defenders, racking up nearly 50 caps and occasionally captaining his country. He can play at both his preferred central-defensive role and at right-back, having fulfilled both positions successfully for his country.

A graduate of Ajax's famous academy, he made his senior debut at 17 and went on to establish himself as a regular for the Amsterdam side, spending five years playing alongside Steven Pienaar before the South African left for Borussia Dortmund.

During his time in Holland, Heitinga won the Eredivisie twice and the KNVB Cup - the Dutch equivalent of the FA Cup - three times.

He was voted Holland's player of the year in 2008 and went on to join Atletico from Ajax that summer  for a fee of €10m.

Unfortunately, Heitinga will be unable to play for Everton in the Blues' Europa League Group Stage games having already featured for Atletico in the Champions League play-off round earlier this season. Should Everton progress though, he could figure in the latter stages of the competition.

ned mccarthyGreat, i think we have one of the best squads in the league, hetingas a very good signing, distin solid, an the russian should be great also, once arteta, jags, yak an anichebe are back we have the strongest squad everton have had in my 19 years as a fan, the 3 strikers if on their game are fantastic as they all bring diffrent options, jo - height, strength, control, yakubu - pace, aggression, workrate, an saha is the most natural finsher in the league on his dfay, COME ON EVERTON UP AND ONWARDS

jo turnerReally pleased with all the new signings we made,would've liked more to come in tho due to the small squad we've got.The one thing that concerns me tho is we left it to the last day yet again before bringing players in,these should be in before we start pre season training.The club also said we don't to sell to buy,yet soon as we sold lescott we started buying players and yet again Bill kenwright hasn't spent a single penny in the market thats 2 years running now.All we've done is sold players to buy players,so i'd like to no where's all the money going to from the tv deals,premiership prize money and we also got to a cup final so where's that money gone to??

Xenophon LawMemo to Mr Murphy...Seeing as Moyes plays 5 in midfield, we only have Bilyletdinov, Fellaini, Arteta, Pienaar, Osman, Cahill, Gosling, Baxter and Rodwell to choose from. With the Europa League, Carling Cup, FA Cup and Premiership to aim for, I don't think that's enough. We'll have to use the younger players for the Carling Cup and FA Cup and focus on the League and Europe.

brennan finneganAgree with Peter Mowforth - who isnt stupid at all- a s Charlie Lacey says. Other way round. Banega may have come if it was made financially possible. We needed someone like him rather than cover for our best player Peanuts.

Wednesday 2nd September 18:20 Report Comment

Xenophon LawHere's a question.....what happened to Manuel Fernandes?!? After the falling through of his transfer due to that 3rd party structure, we got him on loan again when Arteta was injured and he played brilliantly. Where is he now and would anyone here want him back? I would. He showed a lot of bottle to return here after the breakdown of his transfer. A true Blue.

Charlie LaceyPeter Mowforth - are you really that stupid! banega would of fit in well yess, but seriously! he wouldnt have come and valencia didnt even hear anything about him leaving and when they finally did, there wasnt enough time to buy a replacement! but i just hope heitinga is as goood as people say.

Peter MowforthHey all Evertonians. Awesome Job Davey Boy brining in Heitinga, there is jut 1 thing that puzzles me though. Last year 15 million for Fellaini, ok done an alright job. 10 millon for the new boy Billy the Russian, another good signing I feel. But why on earth haven't we signed Ever Benaga he is absolutely awesome, just type his name in Youtube and watch. Athletico wanted 15 million for him. I think David made a blunder there signing the Russian before Benaga.

Delian JonesWould Mr Kenwright and Mr. Moyes please take a bow! Whilst the rest of the premier league is throwing away millions on mediocre players, our top boys are pulling in WORLD CLASS PLAYERS (Heitinger, Bilyaletdinov and Distin) for what can only be called bargain prices! Yes it would have been nice to bring in Banega but I for one am not too concerned, if The Yak, Jags and the Best Little Spaniard we Know can all recover fully from their injuries, then we have suddenly got one hell of a strong squad! Especialy when they're pushed all the way by the likes of Rodwell, Gosling, Agard and Wallace. In Moyes (and Kenwright) we trust!!!!

Gary WrightWhilst this is a good signing our squad is still small and Heitinga cant even play in Europe... we still have some weak points in the team. We need Arteta back desperately. Also, having spent the Lescott money does that mean without selling him we had nothing to spend?

Richard GreyGreat signing, but wish moyesie wouldn't get our hopes up with claiming that we're signing more players than we are! We should sign banega on loan in jan if Valencia let him go! The decision for the new stadium is in November by the way. But I feel our squad is now stronger than last season, especially when we get our injured players back! 4 of the 5 players that we lost were pretty useless anyway! Very excited about this season and if we can keep everyone fit, I think we can have good European and cup runs. City and spurs don't deserve any of the success they get this season! COYB! NSNO!

John HauI am absolutely delighted with the signing of "Heitinga" he would be a key signing for us, he would certainly provide us with goal threat from outside the area and another free-kick taker.

Looking at what our nearest competition has done this transfer window, it looks as though we've fallen behind in the strength and quality of our squad. I'm sure Moyes will work his usual miracles this year, but European football will be a greater achievement this year than it was last.

Tom HeywoodVery, very pleased with the signing, watched him play in a few holland games, he's a tough nut, knows what to do when and where, just what we needed, good job Moyes.. Plus an added bonus is the fact he played alongside Stevie Piennar for a number of years at a former club, so they'l have no problem connecting! Brilliant! Top Marks Everton!!
