Neville urges Everton duo to stay

Both Pienaar and Arteta have been linked with moves away from the club this summer and have little time left on their contracts.

“We want them to stay and that’s the bottom line,” Neville told Sky Sports News. “The manager and fans obviously want them to stay.

“They’ve got a great environment to play in. I keep saying to them the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. They’ve got a great platform.

“They’re all highly thought of and they are all looked after and hopefully they can stay and we can build something really special.

“If we keep everybody together these boys can win silverware at this club and that’s what they should remember.”
