David Moyes has reiterated his desire to bring Steven Pienaar back to Everton on a permanent deal, and made reference to Pienaar himself desiring to return to Goodison Park.
Moyes: “We are keen [on Pienaar] and I hope in time we would be able to conclude that deal,”
“I don´t know if the situation has changed [with Andre Villas-Boas coming in as new Spurs manager] but Steven has made it very clear he wants to come back here and my understanding is that hasn´t changed.
“My next job in the coming weeks is to get Steven Pienaar here as well.
“The season we qualified for the Champions League we had people in place early doors so if we could do that again then we would hope we could replicate what we have done before.
“The Premier League has changed in the level of squads and the standard but we will try to start the season better than we have done.”
