Everton boss Moyes: Pienaar will not be sold

Everton boss David Moyes is determined to hang onto Steven Pienaar.

Yet despite Pienaar, 28, having just one more season left on his contract, Moyes is keen to keep hold of last term's star man.

The Goodison boss said: "This time last year I said I would keep him no matter what - and that's still the case.

"We have not had an offer for him and we are not encouraging one. If anyone did come in, they would need a sackful of cash because I am happy to go with the players we have here this year.

"The board certainly are not telling me to sell Pienaar.

"He was our player of the year last season - we don't want him to go and I don't think he does either."
