Man Utd lead Roma 2-0 from their Champions League 1st-leg, but with two key players, Vidic & Ferdinand, likely to miss the game Roma will have been given a boost – Weds. Click here for the latest match odds!

Steven Pienaar admits the ‘clock is ticking’ for Everton to decide whether to sign him on a permanent basis.

The midfielder has impressed at Everton during a season-long loan from Borussia Dortmund, but despite talks between the two clubs, no deal has been struck.

Pienaar told KickOff.com: “At this stage I’m in the dark. I’m still under contract to Borussia Dortmund until June 2009 and only when they give me the go-ahead can I start to negotiate with any possible club.

“Obviously they will only give me this permission when they have reached an agreement with a club that wishes to buy me, but so far I have not been informed by Dortmund that they have reached agreement with Everton.

“The clock is ticking for me because I have a maximum transfer fee of €3m in my contract with Dortmund that is only valid until April 30.

“I cannot allow this deadline to expire because this is a transfer fee that is affordable to a number of clubs, particularly in the Premiership.

“So reasonably speaking, I can only wait for a few more days for Everton to reach agreement with Dortmund.

“If that’s not going to be forthcoming, then I will then need to pursue the other options that I may have and finalise everything by the end of April.”
