South Africa star Steven Pienaar has given Everton a boost by committing his future to the club despite reports linking him with a move away from Goodison Park.
The 28-year-old has been in impressive form of late and scored fine goals against Arsenal and Manchester City last month before Tuesday's well-worked opener against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.
He has been linked with both Arsenal and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, and has only 18 months remaining on his contract.

But Pienaar, quoted in the Daily Express, said: "I feel this is my home. The supporters have always been good to me and I always give 100%."
He added: "I definitely aim to play here for a lot longer, why not? Talk of moving is only rumours and I'm definitely enjoying my football here."
