[MLS] A deal to send Landon Donovan to Everton on loan from the Los Angeles is not yet finished. Hours after Everton confirmed interest in the U.S. international, the Galaxy issued a statement saying that Galaxy, MLS and Landon's representative would work together to do what would be "beneficial to all parties."

"We are aware of Everton's interest in Landon Donovan, as they are one of a number of clubs who have contacted the Galaxy about the possibility of a short term loan agreement for Landon," the Los Angeles Galaxy said in a statement. "The Galaxy, MLS and Landon's representative will work together to determine if and whether an arrangement with Everton or any other club would be beneficial to all parties."

The statement followed reports that in the European media that a loan deal sending Donovan to Everton had been completed

"Landon is a player [manager] David Moyes has identified as someone he would like to bring to the club," Everton chief executive Robert Elstone told the club's official website. "We are working to make that happen and hope we can reach agreement soon with all the appropriate parties."

Donovan could join Everton on Jan. 2 before heading back to Los Angeles in March for the 2010 MLS campaign.

Everton is a club with close ties to the U.S. soccer. Its star goalie is American No. 1 keeper Tim Howard, and the Toffees played the MLS All-Stars in the 2009 summer event at Real Salt Lake's Rio Tinto Stadium.

Everton acquired two young Americans -- Wake Forest striker Cody Arnoux and Cal Poly's Anton Peterlin -- over the summer.

It finished fifth in the EPL last season but finds itself tied for 15th in the 20-team league heading into the busy holiday season.

Donovan, who went to Bayern Munich last winter in such a deal, would be available for Everton's tough winter campaign that includes games against first-place Chelsea and second-place Manchester United at Goodison Park.
