John Heitinga was on the verge of making a move to West Ham United and some articles even emerged claiming that the switch was just about completed and done but according to the defender that has only made 2 appearances for Everton in this season, he denied making the switch as he claimed that it would be a bad move in his career.

“At my age it’s important to make the right decisions. Then it’s not all about the money, as that wasn’t a problem at West Ham United. You have to be fully convinced that you will make the right step and I didn’t have that’’.

“Therefore I have cancelled the move to West Ham United and we will now wait for the interest of other clubs. The interest is there already, so I am confident I will find another club before January 31st. That’s the date the transfer windows will close.” he said in a statement that was told to the public and the media through his agents.

West Ham does have some good news as they have already signed the highly rated youngster of Peterborough Jaanai Gordon on a permanent deal.

The boss of West Ham Sam Allardyce has a busy month ahead of him, now that the transfer window is opened. Andy Carroll remains injured which means that a new forward might be arriving as a temporary option until Carroll completes his recovery.

Asamoah Gyan is another target of Sam Allardyce as it is believed that he is open on making a move back to England and he has a few appointments with his club Al Ain regarding his future and if he is indeed allowed to make a loan or permanent deal away from the club.

West Ham will be offloading a number of their dead weight players in order to create enough funds to finance and bring in new arrivals to the squad.
