Fulham are closing in on the signing of Everton’s John Heitinga according to Sky Sports.

The Dutch international defender has been looking to secure a move away from Goodison Park all this month.

He turned down a move to West Ham, and had looked set to move abroad with Roma and Galatasaray both showing an interest.

Now it seems Fulham have persuaded him to move to London. The 30-year-old is in talks with the Cottagers and undergoing a medical.
