David Moyes has said it would take "a sack-load of cash" for him to consider selling Steven Pienaar before the transfer deadline and confirmed Everton missed out on Craig Bellamy due to a lack of funds.

The South Africa international is refusing to accept the £60,000-a-week contract extension that Everton offered before the end of last season and would become a free agent when his current deal expires next summer.

Tottenham Hotspur have again been linked with the 28-year-old but Moyes insists he is under no pressure to sell the player he bought for £2m from Borussia Dortmund. He is prepared to hold Pienaar to the final 12 months of his contract in the absence of a substantial offer or agreement with Everton.

"We have not had an offer for Steven and if anyone does make an offer they will need a sack-load of cash because I am not interested in selling," the Everton manager said. "At the moment the board are not telling me to sell Steven Pienaar either.

"He was our player of the year last season and we don't want him to go. We have made him a really good offer but he's not accepting our offer. It's as simple as that. I don't know where it goes from there, but he knows and so do his people."

Pienaar is seeking a deal in the region of Mikel Arteta's new £75,000-a-week contract before following the Spaniard, Tim Cahill, Jack Rodwell, Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman in committing his future to Goodison Park this summer, and has admitted he will stay at the club if the money is right.

"I'm happy to sign a new one, but at my age it has to be right and fair," Pienaar said. "The only difference I've had with the club has been over what's right. There's been a lot of speculation about a transfer but I've never once said that I want to leave Everton."

Moyes would sell Yakubu Ayegbeni for around £9m, but has only received a £6m bid from West Ham United for the Nigerian striker so far, while there has been no contact from Celtic regarding the defender Joseph Yobo. James Vaughan is a target for Blackpool but they are unable to meet his current wages.

The Everton manager admitted he attempted to sign Bellamy from Manchester City before his loan move to Cardiff City this week, although, with City unwilling to subsidise the striker's £95,000-a-week salary to the same extent in the Premier League, a deal for the Welshman was beyond his means.

"We had a genuine interest but when I heard what the deal would cost I knew we wouldn't be able to do it," Moyes said.

Fair enough but if he walks for free next year he'll have a lot to answer for.

i dunno, one of the things we can be proud of at everton is that we have a wage structure, and we are never held to ransom by a player over wages or a club over fees. We've offered him a deal, i trust that moyes sees him the same way we see him and he's been offered a fair deal (although i expect, as always, there is some haggling to go) and if he doesn't sign he leaves next year. These days 6mil wouldn't even fix the bogs in goodison never mind buy a replacement player. 
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

15k or maybe 20k less tha Arteta is ludicrous tho and I would also be pissed. 5k less than sure, that's fair

I agree. I'm sure Moyes is offering him a lot of money, plus I don't think he should get same money as Arteta, he has been with us for a lot longer and has always been loyal. Pienaar owes us, we gave him a good opportunity, Moyes believed in him and helped him find his best game.
If what we offer is big and he does not sign, let him sit on the bench for the whole season.

I wouldn't bench him all season but totally agree with the rest of this.

The only reason Arteta is paid the highest at the club is that we desperately needed to keep hold of him. We're half the team without his influence in the centre of the park, and judging by his comments, after signing the new deal, his head was turning towards the exit door.

Apart from him, if the rumours are true then no one earns more than Moyes. Arteta is the only one because he's irreplaceable to us. Pienaar needs to accept that as the reason why Mikel earns more than Moyes (allegedly) and take the offer. He won't get much better than 60k a week here.

£6m is much more than £0

If he does not sign soon, we will not get the best out of him. He knows he does not have a contract next year so he'll be playing careful; if he gets a bad injury he's fukd. So if he's not sold now, I think we'll end up selling him for peanuts in January.
