Spurs may stall Pienaar deal

2011-01-05 10:31

Johannesburg - Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has revealed his admiration for Steven Pienaar, who could make a "great free transfer".

The South African international is out of contract at Everton in six months' time, which has attracted interest from a host of suitors, including Spurs.

Media reports suggest the London club are weighing up a £1.5m January offer for Pienaar but, with the playmaker available for free in the English summer, Redknapp might stall on the deal.

"If he doesn't sign a contract [with Everton], he'll be a great free transfer for someone at the end of the year, if he doesn't stay at Everton," said Redknapp on Wednesday.

"He still belongs to Everton, so it's a difficult one.

"They are still trying to keep him. We'll wait and see what happens."

      Spurs have such a strong squad at the moment..well almost..doesn't help much when players are suspended..Bongani Khumalo will strengthen the central defence..we need another playmaker like Modric..Steven Pienaar would be ideal if he had a bit more upper body strength..Liverpool would be a better option

    We don't want him and we don't need him. He's an average player. We need more Van der Vaart and Modric type quality. COYS !

      i must agree he won't suite the midfield setup at Spurs..maybe Gerard..then he defianetly won't walk alone..COYS all the way
