Everton defender John Heitinga's proposed move to West Ham is off, according to reports in the Dutch media.
Heitinga was expected to finalise a deal to join the Hammers this week but the defender pulled the plug on the transfer, saying it didn't feel right.
"The deal has been cancelled," he told De Telegraaf. "This has nothing to do with money, but is only about the feeling I got.
"This might be the most important decision of my career, so everything has to be just right. We reached the conclusion that this is not the case after we held talks."
