Everton have accepted an offer from Chelsea for midfielder Steven Pienaar, and rejected a lower bid from Premier League rivals Tottenham.
Everton manager David Moyes says the South African’s international representatives have been allowed to talk to Chelsea.
Moyes says “if Tottenham offer the same money that may change, or maybe he will agree terms with Chelsea”.
Spurs manager Harry Redknapp responded by saying if Everton have “accepted an offer from Chelsea for $4,7-million, I don’t know if we would be prepared to match that offer — I doubt it very much”. — Sapa-AP
