Everton are believed to be willing to allow winger Steven Pienaar make a move to Tottenham Hotspur in January, if the north London club allow Niko Kranjcar to move the other way.

The future of the Toffees midfielder has been the subject of intense speculation, as the 28-year-old was linked with moves to a clutch of clubs during the summer - amid reported interest from Spurs.

With only a year left on his contract at Goodison Park, it is thought that the South Africa international could be in line to make a move away from the club.

In the meantime, Kranjcar - who reunited with manager Harry Redknapp last summer - has fallen down the pecking order, and has not started a single game for his club this season.

He was also left out during the recent League Cup encounter against Arsenal, which saw the gaffer field a few fringe players.

Previous reports point towards the Croatian pondering a move away from White Hart Lane in search of regular football.

Now talkSPORT claims that Everton are ready to do a swap deal with their London counterparts if Kranjcar is allowed the join the ranks on Merseyside.

Redknapp has previously maintained that Kranjcar remains a part of his plans, but the midfielder has been an unused substitute on six occasions this season.
