He joins the country's reigning league champions after leaving Sunderland where he had a largely unproductive season under former Blues manager David Moyes which was disrupted by injury.
Pienaar had two spells with Everton either side of an ill-advised move to Tottenham Hotspur after he had been picked up by Moyes for the Toffees from Borussia Dortmund in 2007.

We should not have signed him again.

Felt he was an architect of his own downfall. Being tricky he drew many fouls and after years of taking the bumps and being nimble his body took the toll and injuries ruined his last 4 seasons.
Wish him all the best.

David Currie, was he given a true chance over at Spurs I wonder? Anyway, I hope we don't have to use the second sentence of your post after this season regarding a Man Utd. cast-off.

When Arsenal battered us at home and the heads went down, he was the one running himself daft.
Good luck, Pienaar.
