Heitinga joins Everton as highest earner

Johnny Heitinga has joined Everton and immediately become their highest earner.

The Daily Star says Everton signed the Atletico Madrid defender for a £6m fee, which could rise to £7m, just 20 minutes before the transfer window closed.

It is believed his weekly salary will be in excess of the £55,000-a-week enjoyed by previous top earner Mikel Arteta.

The 25-year-old's move looked in jeopardy with Everton unwilling to match the £80,000 a week he was earning at Atletico Madrid.
