Aston Villa join Spurs in battle for Everton star

Villa boss Martin O’Neill is ready to make a move for the South Africa international in order to capitalise on the midfielder’s contract wrangle at Everton.

The Daily Mirror reports that Everton could ask for around £15million for the 28-year-old.

O’Neill is keen to bring in Pienaar this summer as James Milner could be set to leave the club.
