LIVERPOOL — Everton have reached an agreement in principle to bring American international Landon Donovan back to the English Premier League club on a short-term loan from LA Galaxy.
The 29-year-old would be eligible to play in Everton’s game against Bolton Wanderers on January 4, with the loan lasting until after the Merseyside derby at Anfield on February 25.
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.”
Donovan, who scored two goals in 10 games in his 2010 spell at Goodison Park, told evertonfc.com: “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.”
