Everton boss David Moyes is reportedly close to tying up a season-long loan deal for South African midfielder Steven Pienaar.

The Liverpool Echo claims that the 25-year-old is due to arrive in England for talks with David Moyes about making the switch from German side Borussia Dortmund.

He has failed to settle at the German club after moving from Dutch side Ajax.

Pienaar has been capped 20 times by South Africa and can play anywhere across the midfield.
