Everton are struggling to convince Steven Pienaar to sign a new deal.

The News of the World says Toffees boss David Moyes is still no closer to getting Pienaar, 28, to commit his future to the club.

With one year now remaining on his current deal, Inter Milan and Arsenal are closely monitoring the situation and will be encouraged by the midfielder's stalling tactics.

Moyes is loathe to losing a player who has been a revelation since his arrival from Borussia Dortmund three years ago, but past experience with key departures Joleon Lescott and Wayne Rooney have taught the Scot to adopt a pragmatic approach to the situation.
