Pienaar has Everton medical ahead of Tottenham exit
Steven Pienaar’s full-time return to Everton has moved a step closer as the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has undergone a medical with David Moyes’ side, the Daily Mirror has reported. The transfer is expected to be completed within a matter of days.
A fee of around £4m has been agreed for the 30-year-old, an increase of £1m on the sum Spurs originally paid Everton for the South Africa international in January 2011. Pienaar is said to have been Moyes’ primary transfer target of the summer after a successful loan return in January of this year, following Pienaar’s inability to win a regular place in the Tottenham side under Harry Redknapp.
Pienaar’s temporary return to Goodison Park was concluded in the dying hours of the winter transfer window but once all was confirmed, Pienaar hit the ground running. He made 14 Premier League appearances and scored four goals, including netting within minutes of his first appearance at Goodison, against Chelsea.
