By Soccer Laduma - Jul 28, 2017 10:35 AM

Bidvest Wits’ Steven ‘Schillo’ Pienaar is one of the highest earning players in the Premier Soccer League despite taking a multi-million wage drop compared to his earnings last season.

The former Bafana Bafana captain’s contract with English side, Sunderland came to an end on June 30, this year, with reports revealing at the time that the 35-year-old was cashing in on around £80 000 a month. With the current exchange rate, that is equivalent to ±R1.4 million a month.

After an illustrious 16-year career in Europe, where he plied his trade for Ajax Amsterdam, Borussia Dortmund, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland, the former Premier League player will once again be turning out in his home country’s top flight and Siya sources have revealed that Pienaar will be among Mzansi’s top earners, cashing in on around R5 million per annum at the Students.

According to Siya sources, the player will be in an exclusive bracket which includes the likes of Itumeleng Khune, Siyanda Xulu, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Dean Furman.

“Yes, there is interest in Khama (Billiat) but we must remember that an interest is not an offer. Khama is one of our key players. He loves Sundowns and we also love him but we are also open to offers,” Sundowns’ spokesman Thulani Thuswa told The Star. "If the offer is right we will sit down and have a look at it,” Thuswa elaborated. “But Khama is not refusing to sign a new deal. We must remember that Sundowns haven’t had time (to talk to him). Our schedule has been very tight. We were involved in three competitions in the last few months,” Thuswa said. "Now that we have more time on our hands I believe we will be able to discuss Khama’ s future,” Thuswa concluded.
