Scramble for Pienaar intensified in England

Scramble for Pienaar intensified in England

Many teams have been linked with a swoop for Bafana Bafana captain Steven Pienaar, who is frustrated by warming the bench at Tottenham Hotspurs ever since his move from Everton a season ago.

Pienaar, a talented and versatile midfielder, has had his career at Spurs hampered by incessant injuries. It is an open secret that a player of Pienaar's calibre will always feel frustrated when he does not get enough game time. That is Pienaar's plight at Spurs at the moment.

It is not clear which move Pienaar would prefer, but the former Toffees star is not without admirers and potential suitors in England.

Former club Everton are believed to be planning a bid for him, if the price is good and the Goddison Park crowd will definitely be pleased to have Schillo back 'home'.

Sunderland under their new manager, reverred Martin O’Neill are eyeing the South African international and appear to have made him their prime target during the January transfer window.

Now new Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes is reported to have placed Pienaar on his wanted list.

Another rumour in the English media linking Pienaar with a big move to Arsenal has been dismissed by the Bafana captain's camp.  

Surprisingly Spurs Manager Harry Redknapp recently announced that Pienaar still has a future at White Hart Lane despite having made only five starts ever since his more than £3m move from Everton a season ago. 

That announcement, coming from a shrewd manager like Redknapp, might as well be a marketing gimmick in as much it was meant to boost Pienaar's confidence ahead of the second period of the English Barclays Premier Soccer League.

Given the interest generated during this transfer window, it will not be surprising if Pienaar ceases to be a Spurs player by the end of  this January transfer window. Pienaar is expected not to mind as long as it will guarantee him game time.
