Pienaar move edging closer


‘Schillo’ was a crowd favourite at Goodison Park before a R65-million switch to Tottenham Hotspur last year January.

However, a combination of injuries and tough midfield competition meant he hardly featured for Spurs, prompting a loan move back to Everton, where he again flourished.

Now Moyes confirms that talks are at an advanced stage to make Pienaar’s return a permanent one.

“I think we are much closer to Pienaar and hopefully in time I will have something, but I don't quite have it yet,” the Scot says.
