Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar has admitted he is in the dark as to whether he will be at Everton next season.

380112 - Pienaar unsure of future following end of Everton loan

The South African joined Everton on loan in January, his second spell at the club, and made a major impact as the Toffees finished the season ahead of Merseyside rivals Liverpool.

Pienaar signed off from his loan spell by helping Everton beat Newcastle 3-1 and it was an emotional moment for the player who is in the dark about his future.

"It's hard," Pienaar told Everton TV. "The first time I left I didn't say goodbye, this time around it's a bit sad. I just want to say thanks for the support from day one. I really appreciate it.

"It means a lot to me, this club. Let's just see what will happen in the summer. I think my loan spell went well. I am pleased with myself.

"Don't forget, I didn't play much in the first half of the season and the only way I could pay the manager and the supporters back was by performing and I think I did quite well."
