Everton boss David Moyes is relaxed over Steven Pienaar pledging his long-term future to the club. The South Africa winger is attracting a number of suitors following an impressive season at Goodison Park.
Asked if he was confident a deal could be struck before the World Cup, he said: "Yes. The talks have been ongoing for a long time. I hope we will, I am sure we will.
"We brought him here on loan when he was a bit down and gave him that platform. I think he has found a good home."
Like Pienaar there is also speculation about Jack Rodwell's future.
Moyes added: "He has a four-year deal. Both players are under contract. It is not as if we are panicking, they are both Everton players."
