Pienaar keen to sign new Everton deal after Europa triumph

Everton's Steven Pienaar is hoping he can first win the Europa League with Everton and then sign a new deal with the club.

The South Africa international is attracting attention from some top clubs around Europe as his contract pushes towards the end of its current tenure but he insists he sees his future at Goodison Park.

"I really feel this is my home - I have always felt right at this club, the supporters have always been good to me and I've always given 100 per cent the Everton cause," he said.

"I definitely aim to play here for a lot longer, why not? Talk of moving is only rumours and I am really enjoying my football here.

"I didn't even know that I had made 100 appearances for the club, but I feel as though I belong, and I hope to be here for a long time to come."
