Steven Pienaar’s Twitter page may have beaten everyone else to it but it has now been announced that the midfielder has joined Spurs on a four and a half year contract.
For anyone who didn’t catch the ‘Tweet’ Pienaar stated: “To end speculation I am going to Spurs. I’ve had brilliant years at Everton and it will always be a special place in my heart.”
The club have confirmed that a deal has been reached and the fee is believed to be £2.5m. A work permit is required but it may come through in time for him to be in the squad for Newcastle on Saturday.
Pienaar’s arrival was met with mixed feelings by Spurs fans as it would appear that the one area we don’t need players for is in midfield. Everton fans however rate him highly and there is no doubting the player’s ability so we welcome Steven Pienaar and wish him every success in a Lilywhite shirt.
