Heitinga is also fully behind Moyes, who he feels can deliver a trophy next season.
"I don't think just anyone can play for Everton," he told evertonfc.com. "We are a Club with a lot of tradition and you have to show your spirit. I think we have already got a few big names and have a good squad. We don't have the biggest squad but the players that are playing here now have been playing a long time together."
Heitinga added: "(David Moyes) is a good manager. I think after Ferguson and Wenger he is the longest serving manager at any club. He gives the players confidence and I think we did quite well after a slow start, like last season. Hopefully for him, for the fans and for the players maybe we can get into Europe or win the Carling Cup or the FA Cup next season."
