Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal in principle with Steven Pienaar, having beaten off competition from Internazionale and Atlético Madrid with a contract worth £70,000 a week over four years according to The Guardian.

Pienaar will be a free agent in the summer so he is currently free to talk to clubs and Spurs need to decide whether to pay a fee to take him now or wait until the summer. Much will depend on Redknapp's ambition as to whether Spurs can challenge for the title this year.

Whether Everton would sell now is another factor. The Toffees lie in 11th place in the Barclays Premier League but with the league so tight this year, they are only four points clear of the relegation zone.

Pienaar has ignored the club's offer of a new bumper contract and is now seeking pastures new after scoting one goal in 11 appearances in the Barclays Premier League this season.

Moyes has said he would prefer to keep Pienaar for the remainder of the season and Harry Redknapp has tracked Pienaar for some time and knows that he has the versatility to play anywhere across midfield.
