A free agent after his contract with Premier League club Everton ran out, the former Bafana Bafana captain is considering his next move.
The 34-year-old is wanted by Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza, who confirmed that he will court the midfielder, with a possible move to China also an option.
Pienaar, though, will weigh up a move to Bucs first.
He tells SoccerLaduma: “Obviously I have always been a Pirates supporter and would consider an offer from the Buccaneers first.
“But I’m out of contract and whichever team decides to offer me a contract, I will look into it and decide what’s best for my family.”
