Steven Pienaar

Everton have finally agreed a fee to re-sign midfielder Steven Pienaar from Tottenham Hotspur, according to Sky Sports News.

The South African moved to Spurs from the Toffees in January 2011 in a £3m deal. However, the 30-year-old struggled to settle in London and only managed to make 10 appearances during his time at White Hart Lane.

Pienaar was then loaned back to Everton in January 2012 and made an immediate impact, scoring four goals in 14 games. This form persuaded boss David Moyes to try and re-sign the midfielder on a permanent basis but the Merseysiders struggled to agree a fee after holding initial talks with Tottenham at the end of last season.

But Sky Sports News are now reporting that the Blues have finally managed to agree a deal and a move back to Everton should be sealed in the coming days.

    pienaar follows bassong,kranjicar,bentley and others who came with great reputations to spurs.they all failed.one can only put this down to poor coaching at spurs.maybe now under new management things will improve.we have too many players that can only be sold at a loss.

      pienaar, Kranjcar and Dos Santos were never given a chance by Harry – if you weren’t liked you may well have not been there. It’s like Gomes who became invisible!!! Bassong just didn’t perform like he did in his first season at Newcastle whilst Bentley I think is just lazy no ambition and will take his money and run!!!!

        RUBBISH!
        They ALL had a chance, what is the solution play EVERY game dispute playing badly?? Tony is right they came and IF they were all they were suppose to be they would have had some impact after a few games, fact is they didn’t. Gio was mucking about off the field, clubbing when Redknapp said not too IF he had been the real deal then this wouldn’t have occurred and his impact would have been known, 17 games how many more does he want? Doing well against Cheltenham is fine but if you aren’t gonna bring you A game when it matters (e.g Premier league) you only have yourself to blame.
