Moyes’ Praise For Pirates Target Pienaar

Sunderland head coach, David Moyes, has heaped praise on South African midfielder, Steven Pienaar, but admits he’s not made a decision on his future yet.
 
 
Pienaar, 34, has been training with the Black Cats for a while now as he looks to earn himself a contract on Wearside, and it appears that he has been doing enough to impress his former Everton boss so far.
 
The midfield man - who will be given at least another week at Sunderland - was heavily linked with a return to South Africa after leaving the Toffees at the end of their last campaign, although it seems as though he may be able to secure himself at least one more contract in the English Premier League.
 
Speaking to The Shields Gazette in the UK, the ex-Manchester United head coach said, “Steven is still here – he has done very well. We thought about maybe including him in the Under-23 game on Sunday (they drew 1-1) but we will probably train him more and get him ready.
 
“He is very good on the ball, doesn’t give possession away too often. He is a tidy player but we would probably rather wait another week or so to see where he is at.”
 
With the Premier League now underway, Pienaar will be hoping to finalise his future soon, but Moyes’ words will give him hope that he could land a deal at Sunderland.
