Heitinga hints at Everton exit

John Heitinga has indicated to media in his native Holland that he could leave Everton this summer.

John Heitinga could be part of an exodus at Goodison Park

The defender’s contract at Goodison Park expires in 2014, and he has revealed that no new deal is currently on offer.

Heitinga, signed on a five-year contract from Atletico Madrid for £6.2 million in 2009, believes Everton could decide to sell him now rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer.

The 29-year-old has had a poor season, but has refused to shy away from criticism, even taking to Twitter to apologise to fans for some of his performances.

Discussing his Everton future, Heitinga told Dutch football magazine Voetbal International: "If they want to earn something for me, this is the moment. I have made no arrangement with the club about that. I will just wait and see what happens."

Heitinga was close to leaving Everton for Turkish club Fenerbahce last July, but the deal fell through because the two clubs could not agree a fee.

“Everton asked too much and the deal collapsed,” Heitinga said.
