Fiorentina have Heitinga deal?

Italian newspapers claim Fiorentina have their hands on Everton defender Johnny Heitinga for January.

The 30-year-old Dutch defender’s contract with the Toffees is set to expire at the end of the season.

According to La Nazione, Fiorentina have already reached a basic agreement with Heitinga to arrive during the January transfer window.

Everton would be willing to release him for a minimal fee, as he has only made two League Cup appearances this season.

Heitinga joined Everton from Atletico Madrid in September 2009, having previously come through the Ajax academy.
