South Africa's Pienaar training with Sunderland
Former South African midfielder Steven Pienaar is training with Premier League club Sunderland and could find himself reunited with manager David Moyes.
The ex-Bafana Bafana player is a free agent after seeing out his contract with Everton at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Moyes, who was appointed as the Black Cats new boss last week, is a known admirer of Pienaar and signed the player twice when he was in charge of Everton.
The 34-year-old midfielder has struggled with a series of injuries in the past two seasons and was reportedly mulling over a possible return to South Africa, where the likes of Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns were keen on acquiring his services.
However, this opportunity to possibly remain in the Premier League is likely to be Pienaar’s preferred option, but he must impress in training if he is to win a contract at Sunderland.
