Everton have completed the signing of Borussia Dortmund midfield man Steven Pienaar on a one-year loan deal after he was granted a work permit.
Pienaar is on his way to the Premier League
Pienaar, a seasoned international, joined Borussia from Ajax last summer when Tomas Rosicky moved to Arsenal.
However, the 25-year-old has struggled at the Bundesliga club and failed to find the net in 25 league appearances.
The South African star has been training with Everton at their pre-season camp in Los Angeles.
He said: "I am really excited to have joined a traditional club like Everton.
"It is always a good opportunity for the players to play in Europe and I am looking forward to making a return myself as I missed it last season."
