In January of 2011, Tottenham bought winger Steven Pienaar from Everton for 3 million pounds. Exactly 18 months, 0 goals, and 10 appearances later, Daniel Levy sells Pienaar back to Everton for a 1.5 million pound profit. So if you're doubting Daniel Levy in his negotiations with Real Madrid on Luka Modric, or on anything else, don't do it. Just don't. On rejoining Everton:
"I am happy to be here. It took a few weeks to sort out but I am delighted to be back and excited to play for Everton."
"There was no doubt in my mind that I would be back here. At the end of the season I told the manager how I felt and I am happy now it is all done."
