Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns are interested in signing former Bafana Bafana midfielder Steven Pienaar, following his release from English Premier League side Everton.

The veteran midfielder started his career at Ajax Cape Town in 1999 before moving to Europe where he turned out for the likes of Ajax Amsterdam, Borussia Dortmund, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to Soccer Laduma, the Brazilians are keen to add some experience to their squad as they prepare to challenge for honours in all competitions, including the CAF Champions League.

Pienaar himself recently admitted that he'd be open to ending his career in his native country if he received an 'interesting' offer, and it seems likely that Pitso Mosimane's side will have enough financial muscle to lure the 34-year-old to Chloorkop.

Pienaar spent a decade playing for South Africa between 2002 and 2012, earning 61 caps and scoring three goals.
