OFFICIAL: Everton Sign Johnny Heitinga

heitinga450 Everton have this afternoon snapped up versatile defender Johnny Heitinga from La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid, who has signed after a fee of £6 million was paid by the Toffees to the Spanish club, according to the club’s official website.

The Dutchman has signed a five-year deal, after a whirlwind day in which he passed a medical and agreed personal terms.

The defender, who can play anywhere along the back line or in a defensive midfield role, will wear Joleon Lescott’s old number 5 shirt for the Blues.

The player was happy to sign for the club, according to Sky Sports News, with a compromise from both Heitinga and the club with regard to the player’s wages.
