'Happy' Pienaar plays down Bayern link

Soccernet staff

Everton winger Steven Pienaar insists he is happy at the club despite rumours he is being lined up for a switch to Bayern Munich.

Pienaar has been enjoying a fine season with Everton and reports in Germany suggest he is on a shortlist of players lined up to replace Franck Ribery should he fail to sign a new contract.

However, Pienaar - tipped by Cristiano Ronaldo to be a star at this summer's World Cup - insists he has no intention of leaving Goodison Park for the foreseeable future.

"I feel this is my home," he said. "The supporters have always been good to me and I always give 100%. I definitely aim to play here for a lot longer - why not? Talk of moving is only rumours and I am definitely enjoying my football here."
