Everton boss David Moyes has confirmed they have accepted a bid from Chelsea for Steven Pienaar.

The Merseyside club have, though, turned down Tottenham's offer for the midfielder. Moyes revealed on Friday the Toffees had accepted an offer for the South Africa international, who is out of contract at the end of the season, but did not name the club.

The Scot said after the 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield: "We have accepted an offer from Chelsea. Steven has not agreed terms with Chelsea. We've given his representatives a chance to talk to Chelsea but they've not got permission to talk to Tottenham because they've not offered the same money."
