Dutch defender ready to move on.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Everton defender Johnny Heitinga has admitted that his time at Goodison Park could be up ahead of the summer transfer window, Sky Sports reports.

The Dutch international stopper is entering the final year of his current deal and feels that the club will sell him now rather than lose him for free next summer and Turkish club Fenerbahce are reported to be interested in taking him on board for a cut price deal after just failing to land him during the January transfer window.

And the 29-year-old has confirmed that the club have yet to offer him anything in terms of a new agreement.

“If they want to earn something for me, this is the moment,” Heitinga told Dutch magazine Voetbal International. “I have made no arrangement with the club about that.

“I will just wait and see what happens.”

Heitinga claimed he was poised for a move to Fenerbahce, but that the deal fell through at the final minute because of Everton’s valuation.

“Everton asked too much and the deal collapsed,” Heitinga said of the proposed move to Fenerbahce.

Heitinga has made 135 appearances for Everton since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2009 for a fee of £6.2 million.
