Tottenham have joined Chelsea in having a bid accepted by Everton for midfielder Steven Pienaar.
The South Africa international’s future at Goodison Park has looked uncertain for some time, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.
David Moyes revealed after Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Merseyside rivals Liverpool that the Toffees had agreed a fee with Chelsea,believed to be in the region of £3million.
Moyes also revealed that a lower offer from Tottenham had been rejected and Spurs manager Harry Redknapp responded by saying his side would probably not return with an improved bid.
However, it appears they have now matched Chelsea’s valuation and will be hopeful of winning the chase for his signature as Pienaarhas yet to agree personal terms with The Blues. (Sky Sports)
So now it appears the ball is firmly in Steven Pienaar’s court and the South African will have to make a decision about joining either a team in fourth or fifth spot in the Premier League. The 28 year old will no doubt hope that the two London sides enter some sort of wage bidding war and then the Everton man will sign on the dotted line.
