Toffees deny Pienaar Crouch swap talk

The South Africa midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer,

has been linked with a swap deal with Tottenham’s beanpole striker

Crouch. When questioned about the chances of a swap deal, Round

responded: “The manager (David Moyes) has said all along he wants

Steven to stay. “He is under contract and as far as we are

concerned he will be an Everton player this season. “There is no

truth in the speculation. Steven has been a terrific player for us

and is a terrific asset.”
