Harry Redknapp reveals Tottenham interest in 'great free transfer' Steven Pienaar

"We'll wait and see what happens," says boss

Harry Redknapp has expressed his belief that Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar would be an excellent Bosman signing in the summer, and admitted that Tottenham are monitoring the player's status.

The Spurs boss is a known admirer of the South African and it is yet to be seen whether he makes a move in January or waits until the summer - when the player's contract runs out - to get his man, but he has indicated an interest in bringing him to White Hart Lane.

As quoted by Sky Sports, Redknapp said:  "If he doesn't sign a contract he'll be a great free transfer for someone at the end of the year, if he doesn't stay at Everton.

"He still belongs to Everton, so it's a difficult one.

"They are still trying to keep him. We'll wait and see what happens."
