David Moyes revealed he is "much closer" to bringing Steven Pienaar to Everton on a permanent basis.
Chairman Bill Kenwright has reportedly been locked in talks with Tottenham over a £5million transfer deal for the South Africa playmaker, who spent the second half of last season on loan back at Goodison Park.
After a 1-1 draw with Motherwell in Stevie Hammell's testimonial at Fir Park, where Well midfielder Nicky Law levelled a first-half header from Shane Duffy, Goodison boss Moyes said: "I think we are much closer to Pienaar and hopefully in time I will have something, but I don't quite have it yet."
