I have everything crossed that this will happen, it'd be a brilliant signing for us.

With DM saying yesterday that he was close to another defender signing this is good news. As people have said maybe this window not turning out to bad after all but only time will tell.

DM also said hoping to do maybe more that 2 more

If he's as good as you say he is Jamie could he play defensive mid and switch Neville to fullback, i cant see him leaving Captain Phil on the bench.
Is captain Phil good enough to play def Mid. ??

He's not good enough to play DM. My point was that he had been played there in a handful of games but that's only because that is often how Ajax try and imrpove there players. He'd be wasted in defensive mid, similar to Jags when played away from his favoured position, and in fairness Neville did a cracking job there last year.

Heitinga is a good defender, a defensive mid he aint though.

I'd compare him to Vermaelen .. not tall or fast, but feisty :) .

He would be a great signing, but I don't see it happening at £5-6m.

God. I want a bit more aggression in the team. Its only really Cahill that offers it (and Vaughan when he's on).

Felli is just clumsy!

This can't be true - can it?! If Lescott cost £24m, how can a player who is a year younger and has been capped 47 times for the Netherlands already - and will be first choice in the World Cup next year while Lescott is warming the bench - be worth just FIVE million?! I've seen Heitinga play a few times for the Dutch and he looks class - if Moyesey does pull this off, I think its time to apologise for all the bitching about leaving it late to sign anyone and recognise that he has pulled an absolute blinder. Joleon WHO?!

Papers are saying that Heitinga's wages might be a problem - well if he's only costing £5m, surely we could offer him a lump sum golden hello (£1m up front, say) to seal the deal. It would still mean we've managed to sign two class defenders for half what we got for Lescott, plus an exciting left winger. You gotta say, selling your best players is never ideal, but if you look at it like that we're a stronger team for it

Everton have a rigid pay structure, so unless he gets heavy bonuses then effectively he will have to take a pay cut. But yes, if the club pulls it off then we would be far stronger than before.

If this happens it will be brilliant, I think that he is pure class. We get the dutch league on telli here in sweden and ive seen him play loads of times. I actually rate him as high as Lescott. Or as he was a couple of years ago which was better than now.

Brilliant signing if it happens.

Heitinga has had a very bad performance in Atletico this year. Childish mistakes, bad skills, slow... right now, Atleti fans HATE this player.
