Johnny Heitinga: Considering his future at Everton

The 29-year-old has made just two appearances for Everton under new manager Roberto Martinez this season, both in the Capital One Cup.

Heitinga has been left out of the provisional Holland squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers with Hungary and Turkey and the centre-back fears he will miss out on Louis van Gaal's World Cup squad next summer if he is not playing reguarly.

"I took a risk by staying at Everton," Heitinga told Voetbal International. "I had a few options to move in August, but they were not interesting enough.

"But maybe something will happen for me in January. Everton know I will be a free agent next summer.

"I want to get back into the Holland team. Everyone knows how Van Gaal picks his players - on the basis of how much playing time they get for their clubs.

"At the moment I'm not in contention to be selected.

"Roberto Martinez has said Phil Jagielka and Sylvain Distin are his first-choice central defenders. It is good to have clarity.

"But it's going to be a big task for me to get back into the first team."

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
