Steven Pienaar insists he would be willing to sign a new contract with Everton if the terms were right.
The South Africa international is in the final year of his contract with the Goodison Park outfit and has been linked with a move to Tottenham.
Negotiations over an extension have dragged on for some time, but Pienaar insists he would be more than happy to re-sign if the terms were “right and fair”.
The 28-year-old told Click Liverpool: “There’s been a lot of speculation about a transfer but I’ve never once said that I want to leave Everton.
“I love playing for Everton. It’s a great club with real tradition and history. You can see that at Goodison Park, an old stadium which is always full and where the fans really know their football.
“And you read about the history of the club too, the trophies and the old stars. We have a good team and the manager is a superb influence.
“I’ll be honest. I have a year left on my contract. I’m happy to sign a new one, but at my age it has to be right and fair.
“The only difference I’ve had with the club has been over what’s right.”
