Hertha Berlin are swooping for Fulham defender Johnny Heitinga.

The former Everton stopper joined Fulham in January, but could not prevent them from being relegated.

De Telegraaf says Heitinga's agent, Rob Jansen, has verbally agreed terms with Hertha over a deal.

The Dutchman comes off contract this month.
