Landon Donovan has joined Everton on loan for January and February of 2012.
The popular U.S. midfielder has rejoined the Merseyside club on loan. Donovan previously had a very successful loan spell with Everton during January 2010. During his time at Goodison Park, Donovan played 13 games in all competitions, scored two goals, and was seen by many as a major factor in Everton’s improved performances at the time.
Donovan, who plays for LA Galaxy, said:
“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.”
The first match that Landon Donovan will be eligible to play in is Everton’s home game against Bolton Wanderers (to be shown live on FOX Soccer Plus and FOXSoccer.tv). Donovan’s loan at Everton will run until after the derby against Liverpool on February 25 (ESPN2).
Regarding the loan signing of Landon Donovan, 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.”
