Everton boss Moyes confident Pienaar staying at Goodison

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.

"Steven Pienaar has found somewhere that suits him. The supporters like him. He did well at Ajax then went to Dortmund, it didn't happen for him.

"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."
