Pienaar deal down to Spurs
Everton remain hopeful that they will be able to do a deal with Spurs to bring Steven Pienaar back to the club on a permanent basis.
The South African spent the final half of last season back at Everton after the then Spurs boss Harry Redknapp allowed him to return to the club after a miserable time at White Hart Lane. Pienaar would love to make that deal permanent but it will all depend on whether or not Everton can come to an agreement with Spurs. First team coach Lumsden believes that Pienaar has realised how good a fit the club were for him. "He lifted the dressing room (on his return)," Lumsden told the Liverpool Echo."They know he's a really good player and him and Bainsey play so well together. "Steven is so enthusiastic in his training and everything he does. He is a quiet boy and if you didn't know him you wouldn't expect much, but when he steps on that pitch he has got a fantastic attitude. "Some people think the grass is greener when they go, but some clubs are made for you. Steven is made for Everton. "It's up to Spurs whether he comes back. He is their player and we just hope something can happen."
