Ajax are one of the clubs who are interested in signing the centre back, and after initial talks, director Marc Overmars has confirmed that another meeting will take place at the end of the week.

Overmars is quoted by De Telegraaf saying, “At the end of the week there is a meeting planned,”

Heitinga spent 18 years with Ajax, making over 150 league appearances and winning two Eredivisie titles before leaving for Atletico Madrid in 2008. The 31-year-old has also enjoyed spells with Everton and Fulham before joining Hertha Berlin last summer.
