Heitinga not expecting Pienaar move

Published Add your comment

Defender John Heitinga believes Everton would be priced out of any attempts to bring Steven Pienaar back to the club.

The South Africa international was sold to Tottenham for £3million a year ago but injuries have restricted his progress and the 29-year-old has made only 16 appearances for the club. Pienaar has been linked with a return to Goodison Park but his former Toffees and Ajax team-mate believes that is unlikely, with manager David Moyes working to a restricted transfer budget.

"I'd take him back but I don't think it's realistic," the Holland international told the Liverpool Echo.
