    If Pienaar had not gone on loan, would he be looking so good playing irregularly, out of position in front of a sceptical Spurs crowd?

    The interesting question for me is, if Modric leaves in the summer, could Pienaar replace him?

    Loaning Pienaar out without replacement must be the worst piece of transfer business by any club this season.

    Nearly as bad as loaning out Corluka when you only have one right back.

    Taking Saha off Everton who then replaced him with Jelavic?

    I don't think it would have made any difference if we had kept them, Harry wouldn't have used them unless we literally couldn't put eleven men on the pitch.

    He was injured for most of his stay at Spurs - then unfit to play upon his return to the squad - then Bale and lennon both got back on the park. Obstacles to a stuttering start to his Spurs career.

    Having found a goalscorer in Nikica Jelavic, David Moyes is already looking at players who can help supply the Croatian International with more chances. In that respect, the Everton manager sees the need to sign Steven Pienaar on a permanent deal.

    Moyesy said: "We're now looking at what goes with Jelavic, what would be good to put with him, what type of player we can buy in the future. In your mind, you are building a team because you have a piece in the jigsaw.

    "We have had pieces in the jigsaw in the past such as, in the main, having good centre-halves, we have an excellent left-back, we have good midfield players. Where we have often been short is in terms of creativity. We lost Steven Pienaar, we lost Mikel Arteta and we didn't have a forward who could score lots of goals.

    "Suddenly we have a forward who can score but we are maybe still lacking a wee bit of creativity. Steven's brought us some more creativity since he's been back. Steven is undoubtedly one of the bits of business we need to do.

    "I can see in my head pictures and directions of where I think we should be going and what players we need to get, which players can help us progress again. Jelavic is a massive piece.

    "For a decent value, how else could you get a striker who might get you 20 goals a season in the Premier League? Normally, for that piece you are looking at £15-20m. There are bits of building blocks now. At the end of the season, I'll have a chat with Bill and see where we should go."

    Well now that Harry is all but certain to stay on board, Pienaar's days are numbered even if/when Modric is sold.

    Big summer coming up with some potentially large changes. Adebayor, Modric, King, Gallas and Gomes all could be gone. Pienaar should play somewhere though. He's a good player and deserves to be on the field, at Spurs or elsewhere.

    does anyone know if there was a clause/fee agreed to make the transfer permanent when he was loaned out?
    there's alot of toffee supporters on another message board i go onto and they're all saying pienaar is going to stay.. not sure if that's just wishful thinking or reality
