Ajax defender Johnny Heitinga is relieved his expected move to Atletico Madrid will be finalised before the start of Euro 2008.

The 24-year-old Holland international has reportedly agreed a five-year contract with La Liga outfit Atletico, with a bid of 10 million euros believed to be enough to trigger a release clause in the player´s contract.

And he told AD Sportwereld: "I decided early on that I didn´t want to have any transfer fuss during Euro 2008. I only want to be busy with playing football there."
