Everton land Donovan

Everton have agreed a deal to sign USA forward Landon Donovan on a short-term loan from MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy.

• Moyes makes Henry approach

Donovan, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at Goodison Park in 2010, will be eligible to play against Bolton Wanderers on January 4, pending the completion of routine paperwork.

The 29-year-old will leave Everton after the Merseyside derby against Liverpool at Anfield on February 25 to rejoin Galaxy ahead of the new MLS season. Everton manager David Moyes said: "I am delighted that we have managed to get Landon back. He will give us some good experience over January and February.

"He did well for us when he was over two years ago and hopefully will return with those same qualities.

"His season has just finished and like last time we need him to hit the ground running because the games come thick and fast at this time of year."

Donovan, who recently led Galaxy to MLS Cup victory, told Everton's official website: "The opportunity to return to Everton and play for such a well-respected club and a manager that I hold in such high regard was something that was simply too good to pass up.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Everton in 2010 and I'm hopeful that we can experience similar success this time around.

"I want to thank David Moyes and Bruce Arena, as well as executives from both clubs and Major League Soccer for allowing me this unique and special opportunity."

Donovan, who has also played in Europe with Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich, became a hugely popular figure with Everton fans during his first stint with the club.
