Steven Pienaar is considering his options at Tottenham.

The former Ajax star admits­ he has found it frustrating­ being a bit-part player in a Spurs team flying high in third place in the Premier League.

With Everton and Sunderland keen, he said: "It's depressing.­ If you are not ­playing you don't have a hand in helping the team and as a player you always­ want to be part of a team that is doing­ well.

"If you are not part of it, it is like getting your money­ ­without ­doing anything."
