[MLS] 2009 league MVP Landon Donovan signed a new four-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy that reportedly makes him the second highest paid player in MLS. It will allow him to pursue opportunities to join a foreign club on a short-term loan agreement.

The agreement paves the way for Donovan to sign with English club Everton for the winter.

"I am excited to be able to pledge my future to the Galaxy by signing this new contract," Donovan said. "I have enjoyed my time with the Galaxy and am committed to helping bring the club another MLS Cup championship. I believe in this team and I want to be a part of its bright future. This is a great day for me both personally and professionally and I look forward to many successful years ahead."

Donovan was thankful to have the chance to move to Everton.

"I'm fortunate," he said. "Most soccer players don't get this opportunity to have the best of both worlds. It's incredible."

Donovan was going to Everton with the blessing of Galaxy coach Bruce Arena, who said Donovan would be in good hands with Everton manager David Moyes.

Arena knows Moyes from his work as national team coach.
