Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has warned Everton they won't get Steven Pienaar on the cheap.

Redknapp is sympathetic to Pienaar's personal frustration, but warned that sympathy is unlikely to stretch to unfavourable business for Spurs.

"Steven Pienaar is a good player," he said. "I would think in all honestly he's going to want to stay at Everton. He seems to have produced his best form there.

"He's a good player, a very, very good player. It's just I had Gareth Bale playing on the left-hand side and you can't dislodge Gareth Bale. He's one of the best left-sided players in the world, without a shadow of a doubt. If he's going to want to stay at Everton and Everton want him, then obviously the deal is going to have to be right for Tottenham."
