Pienaar set for Toffees return

Johannesburg - South Africa captain Steven Pienaar is expected to re-join Everton this week after agreeing personal terms with the club.

The Tottenham playmaker, who may cost in the region of £5million, impressed in a six-month loan spell with the Toffees last term.

Pienaar made his name with Everton in the 2009/10 campaign, scooping the side's player of the season accolade before joining Spurs in January 2011 in pursuit of Champions League football.

However, injuries and intense midfield competition at White Hart Lane prompted his temporary return to Merseyside, with a permanent switch appearing imminent.

"I think we are much closer to Pienaar and hopefully in time I will have something, but I don't quite have it yet," Everton manager David Moyes said on Saturday.

      Still a couple of players short, Gunner........ and a very small squad. And this being Everton, so much could still go wrong with the signing of Steven Pienaar, I won't believe it until I see it with my own eyes ;) Supporting Everton for 40 years will do that to you :)
