So if it doesn’t come off we don’t have to lump him onto the already burdening pile of ‘done deals’ I called that never happened.

“Athletico Straford (t/a Enfield Prestige Motors Ltd [a sub division of Inc])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.

It is unclear, however, whether the north London club will pay around £2m to this month to push the transfer through or wait until the summer when the South African midfielder would be available as a Bosman free agent.”

So the summer it is then.


What say you? The possibility of in a shirt doesn’t really get me going. If we could realistically nick anyone I’d have Neville. Or if it didn’t have to be an Evertonian, Lionel Messi.
