Donovan Talks Confirmed
Everton CEO says Club are hoping to bring USA star to Goodison.
Everton are hopeful of agreeing a deal to sign United States star Landon Donovan on loan.
Blues officials have been discussing the possibility of bringing the player to Merseyside on a short-term deal, beginning in January.
Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said: "Landon is a player David Moyes has identified as someone he would like to bring to the Club. We are working to make that happen and hope we can reach agreement soon with all the appropriate parties”.
If negotiations are successfully completed, the forward would join the Blues on January 2.
Still only 27, Donovan is his country's leading international goal-scorer and is also their most capped player with 120 appearances.
He can operate in a withdrawn striker's role, on the wing or as a more conventional attacking midfielder.
Along with David Beckham, he fired LA Galaxy to last month's final of the MLS Cup - the trophy contested by the top-placed league teams in the American competition.
Regarded as his nation's best ever player, Donovan won the MLS Most Valuable player and the Goal of the Year awards for the 2009 campaign, which concluded last month.
Donovan has previously played in Europe for Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen and would remain at Goodison Park until mid-March, joining fellow USA international Tim Howard.
