Tottenham have held transfer talks with Everton over several days for Steven Pienaar.
The Daily Mail says Pienaar now looks set to see out the final year of his contract at Goodison Park.
Tottenham revived interest in the South African last week and various players plus cash proposals have been discussed but they have failed to find a solution.
Manager David Moyes has underlined he has limited resources and the 28-year-old is unlikely to accept Everton's contract offer made at the end of last season.
