Everton are set to secure on-loan Borussia Dortmund midfielder Stephen Pienaar to a permanent deal.

The Daily Mail says the South African will sign in the next 48 hours. The Borussia Dortmund winger's loan spell at Goodison has attracted interest from Arsenal and Valencia, according to reports in Germany.

But Pienaar has chosen to make his Everton deal permanent in the belief he can pursue his ambitions under Dave Moyes.
