South Africa midfielder Steven Pienaar has completed his move to Everton after being granted a work permit.

The 25-year-old moves from Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan and has already joined up with his new team-mates for their pre-season tour in America.

The Bafana Bafana star, who has also played for Dutch club Ajax, can't wait to make an impact in the Premiership.

"I am really excited to have joined a traditional club like Everton," he said.

"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."
