Heitinga agrees to compromise wage demands for Everton move

Atletico Madrid defender Johnny Heitinga has agreed to compromise his wage demands in order to secure a move to Everton.

The 25-year old Holland international would have become Everton's highest paid player if his demands of almost £80,000 per week were agreed to, but after talks involving Toffees officials and Heitinga's management, a more reasonable sum has been negotiated.

The former Ajax man is expected to undergo a medical on Tuesday and should complete the move before the 5pm transfer deadline.
