Midfielder Steven Pienaar has completed a £4.5 million move back to Everton.

The South African player joined Tottenham just 18 months ago for a reported £3 million.

Now 30-year-old Pienaar has signed a four-year deal after returning to Goodison on loan in January.

"There was no doubt in my mind that I would be back here," said Pienaar.

"At the end of the season I told the manager how I felt and I am happy now."

Pienaar joined Everton from German club Borussia Dortmund in 2007 and spent three-and-a-half seasons at Goodison Park before leaving for Tottenham in January 2011 .
