Everton will look to keep South Africa midfielder Steven Pienaar on a permanent deal this summer.
Pienaar is currently at Everton on loan from north London side Tottenham following a disappointing spell at White Hart Lane. Moyes is planning on speaking with the 30-year-old and hopes he can persuade him to sign on for his second spell with the Toffees.
The South African moved to Tottenham in a surprise move during last year’s January transfer window but failed to make the grade at the London club, often finding himself on the bench behind the likes of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale.
Moyes stepped in and offered Pienaar a route back to Goodison Park on transfer deadline day back in January and the 30-year-old has impressed once again.
The loan move has worked out well for both parties and Moyes will now look to bid for the player on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
“It would be great to keep him,” Moyes said.
“He’s found somewhere he is happy so hopefully we will be able to do it.”
Pienaar is thought to be enjoying his football back on Merseyside and, with Spurs in danger of missing out on Champions League football next term, is likely to accept a move back to Everton.
However, Manager Moyes must wait to meet club chairman Bill Kenwright before he knows his transfer budget, and Pienaar’s wage demands could prove a deciding factor.
