Everton boss Dave Moyes has hinted he's ready to push through a permanent deal for South Africa international Stephen Pienaar.

He told evertonTV: "Steven Pienaar is a terrific player not just because of his skills and his ability on the ball but also because of his honesty and his work-rate.

"People saw that against Fulham when we were 3-0 up and he was still working as hard. His second half performance was excellent but in the first half we were all a little bit flat."

Pienaar is on-loan at Borussia Dortmund.
