Harry Redknapp has admitted that Steven Pienaar would be a ‘great free transfer’.
The Everton winger is out of contract in the summer and looks to be nowhere close to signing a new deal at Goodison Park.
Redknapp confirmed that he is keeping tabs on the 28-year-old, did not comment on whether his club would try to sign Pienaar in the January transfer window or wait until the end of the season.
“If he doesn’t sign a contract he’ll be a great free transfer for someone at the end of the year, if he doesn’t stay at Everton,” said Redknapp at his pre-match press conference.
“He still belongs to Everton, so it’s a difficult one.
“They are still trying to keep him. We’ll wait and see what happens.”
