Signing: Pienaar joins Black Cats

Sunderland AFC have completed the signing of midfielder Steven Pienaar on a short-term deal until the end of the season.  

The South African was a free agent after leaving Everton at the end of last season, having made almost 200 appearances for the Toffees over two spells.  

Pienaar will be reunited with David Moyes, the manager who brought him to England in 2007 from Borussia Dortmund.  

After beginning his career with Ajax Cape Town in his homeland, Pienaar joined Ajax in Holland, where he won six domestic trophies, including two Eredivisie titles.  

From there he went on to join Dortmund before moving to the Blues, whilst he has also had a spell at Tottenham Hotspur before returning to Goodison Park.
