Everton transfer news: £3m rated Finnish star to replace Heitinga?

A round up of the latest Everton transfer news stories.

Everton are set to launch a £3 million bid to sign Finland captain Niklas Moisander.

A Finnish website has tipped Everton to move for the 28-year-old defender with John Heitinga set to leave.

Ajax coach Ronald De Boer has previously said that Moisander could be allowed to leave in the summer.

The Daily Star has reported that Everton are set to seal the signing of Czech goalkeeper Jindrick Stanek from Sparta Prague.

A fee of around £200,000 is expected to be good enough for the Toffees to land the 17-year-old six feet four inches tall shot stopper.

The young star seems to be a very shrewd investment by Roberto Martinez in terms of a long term option for Tim Howard.

Everton defender Heitinga is set to complete a deadline day switch to Turkish club Galatasaray according to the Metro.

The 30-year-old has made only five appearances for the club this season and is and Roberto Martinez has revealed he was given permission to talk to other sides.

“He had talks. He was given permission to speak to a couple of clubs. That has been the case in the last two days,” said Martinez.
