'No contract for Pienaar yet'

2010-10-01 08:10

Johannesburg - Steven Pienaar's agent says the Everton midfielder's future is no nearer to being resolved.

The South Africa international is out of contract at the end of the season and could leave Goodison Park on a free transfer.

It remains to be seen whether Pienaar will see out his deal or sign extended terms to stay with the Merseysiders beyond next summer.

When questioned whether Pienaar's future was any nearer to being resolved, his agent Ivan Modia says no fresh discussions have taken place.

The new Premier League season is still in its infancy and Modia believes it is too soon to discuss where Pienaar will be next season.

"The situation is the same. We are where we were a few months ago and at present we have no planned meeting with Everton," Modia told calciomercato.it.

"The season has just started. We'll see in the appropriate time the best solution for Steven and for the club. But now is not the time to talk about the future."

Rumours surrounding Pienaar's future continue to do the rounds, although Modia insists links with Italy and Arsenal and Spurs is just paper talk.

"Juventus and Inter Milan's interest? At the moment they are just rumours. I've never been contacted by anyone in Italy," he continued.

"Arsenal and Tottenham? Again, this is just market speculation. The reality is that we've not sat down at the table with any club."

    I think it would be best for Steven to stay put. He'll get to play week in and week out. The fans love him, and Everton are usually a very competitive team. If he moves to a bigger club, playing time might be a bit harder to get with competition for places. If he loves playing football, it'll be in his best interests and Pitso's (as well as ours) if he stays with Moyes' men.

    i think steven must stay there for another 2 seaons because he is the best player they ve ever had and he is their playmaker so without pienaar there will be no everton.

    You're partially correct Stan. He is one of their playmakers, but I think Arteta is their main play maker. Steven plays more on the flanks for Everton.

    U R spot on shankly I think he should think about his moment he was in Germany. What if the same situation resurface again, at Everton he play week in and week out. At the age 28 for his position if he should think carefully bcos we stiil need him in 2014 fit and strong to play.
