Mamelodi Sundowns target Steven Pienaar is training with English Premier League club Sunderland in the hope of earning a contract.

The former Bafana Bafana skipper is a free agent after his contract with Everton expired at the end of the 2015/2016 season. Pienaar has been linked with a move to back to South Africa, and Sundowns is reported to be favourites to secure his services.

Pienaar could favour a move to Sunderlands over a return to the PSL to reunite with former Everton manager David Moyes. The former Manchester United manager is known to be an admirer of Pienaar and signed the player twice when he was in charge of Everton.
