Donovan Expects Return


Landon Donovan says he expects to return to Everton after his loan spell ends.

The LA Galaxy star has been at Goodison Park since the turn of the year and is enjoying his time at the Blues.

And even though his loan deal ends next month, Donovan is confident he’ll be back on Merseyside in some capacity in the future .

The Everton supporters are loving having Landon as part of the squad and have started a campaign on social networking site Facebook to express their hope that he will remain at Goodison.

"I wasn't aware of that...that's pretty funny - we'll see what happens!” Donovan told evertonTV. “I'm enjoying it and enjoying every day that I'm here. Every day that goes by makes me think that I want to stay here, but we'll see what happens.

"I would definitely imagine that I will be back here at some point in my life. I think it's been an incredible experience and away from football, the people have been extremely nice. That being said, I do miss LA, I miss my team-mates there, I miss the sunshine. That'd be nice to get back there too."

The 28-year-old managed to get on the scoresheet against Sunderland last month and has helped the Club to some crucial wins during his period at the Blues - resulting in him picking up the Club's Player of the Month award for January. 

"The fans, since the day I got here, have been fantastic,” he beamed. “The day I arrived for the Carlisle match, I was really overwhelmed by how many people who were aware that I was coming and knew who I was and said 'welcome to Everton'. 

"That's been the same with the team, the manager's been great - everybody's been fantastic. I think not only as a person but as a footballer as well, when you feel that it makes it a lot easier to perform on the field.
