Pienaar Signing Confirmed

Everton secure the return of Steven Pienaar to Goodison.

Watch Video Pienaar Signing Confirmed

Everton have secured the permanent return of Steven Pienaar to Goodison Park.

David Moyes declared earlier this summer that his priority was to bring the midfielder back to Everton on a long term basis and a deal has now been struck.

The South African star has put pen to paper on a four-year contract after Everton agreed a £4.5m fee with Tottenham.

He told evertontv: "I am happy to be here. It took a few weeks to sort out but I am delighted to be back and excited to play for Everton.

"There was no doubt in my mind that I would be back here. At the end of the season I told the manager how I felt and I am happy now it is all done."

Steven PienaarPienaar puts pen to paper on his deal

Pienaar, 30, spent the second half of last season on loan at Everton, with his sparkling performances instantly catching the eye as he scored four goals in 14 games.

He had originally joined Everton in July 2007 on loan from Borussia Dortmund before that deal was made permanent a year later.

He left Goodison Park for Spurs in January 2011 but returned to Merseyside 12 months on, with opportunities at White Hart Lane limited.

Back in May he gave an emotional interview declaring his wish to remain with Everton and that has now become reality.

Pienaar will once again wear the number 22 jersey.
