With a little over six months left on his contract, John Heitinga has been discussing his future with Gazetta dello Sport following speculation suggesting that AS Roma are interested in signing him during next month's transfer window.

The 30 year-old is a free agent in the summer after five years at Everton and seems certain to move on from Goodison after losing place in the first team over the last couple of seasons.

Heitinga acknowledged Roma's apparent interest but claimed he is also being tracked by other clubs in Serie A, a league he would very keen to play in after his experience in Spain's La Liga and the English Premier League.

"There is nothing official," Heitinga said of the talk of a move to Italy. "My contract expires in June, and there are many chances for me to leave Everton."

"Roma? I heard a lot about their interest. I think we should know something more concrete next week.

"I'm waiting too. I have played in Spain and England, and I'd also try the Italian experience.

"There are a few Serie A teams interested in me; I'm waiting for official news from my agents.

"Roma are one of the best teams there are in Italy; if the interest is serious, we'll talk for sure within the next few days."
