Ajax's Heitinga confirms Atletico Madrid agreement

Ajax defender Johnny Heitinga has confirmed he's moving to Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

The Holland international will move to Atletico on a Bosman and revealed: "I am thrilled. It's a great step forward in my career, inevitably I'm sad to leave Ajax after 17 years."

Heitinga's deal with Atletico will be for five years and worth a cool £7 million in total.
