There have been a number of clubs who have been linked with the South African International but according to many recent reports, it is said that Tottenham are leading the chase for Steven Pienaar. The Winger is out of contract at Everton in the summer and the club could sell the winger to obtain some cash in January instead of losing him for nothing.
Tottenham have been impressive in the last few months and Pienaar would get an opportunity to play in the Champions League. The tricky midfielder joined Everton in 2008 for around £2 million and it will be around that amount that could be obtained by selling him in January.
Pienaar has been excellent for the last two seasons and has established himself as one of the most important players for the club. Tottenham have a large number of established creative midfielders and Pienaar could struggle to establish himself as a regular in the team. Though he is versatile, he is set to be the second choice winger on either side behind Gareth Bale on the left and Aaron Lennon on the right.
At the age of 28, he needs to be playing regularly and he is in good physical condition at present. It is attractive to join a prosperous club like Tottenham but he must also consider his own decisions and despite assurances from Harry Redknapp, he would know that he will not be in the first team if all the midfielders are fit.
Pienaar has had a number of clubs linked to him including Bayern Munich and Manchester United. For him to be playing regularly, he must find a good club in which he has a good chance of establishing himself as the first choice winger. Everton is a club which has provided him the chance to fulfil his potential and it could be great for him and the club if he decides to extend his contract even if it is for only one more year as this is the time they need him to give the club a massive boost.
Everton’s manager David Moyes has maintained that the doors are open for him to sign a new deal to extend his stay at Goodison Park and he has also praised Pienaar’s professionalism and effort for the club. Pienaar himself admitted that he has never enjoyed football more than he is doing now and could yet stay with the club for some more time.
