Pienaar joins

We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Everton and Steven Pienaar for the player's transfer to the Club.

Pienaar joined Everton from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2007, initially on a season-long loan, and went on to make 132 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 12 goals.

The South Africa international, 28, made his name at Ajax after joining them from their club partners Ajax Cape Town in January 2001.

The versatile midfielder enjoyed great success during his time in Amsterdam, helping Ajax to the Eredivisie championship in 2002 and 2004 and, in turn, gaining great experience in the Champions League before making the move to the Bundesliga with Dortmund in 2006.
