MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Landon Donovan is expected to play his last game for Everton this season at Birmingham City on Saturday, but he says that -- if possible -- he'd like to stay in England until April 15. And why not? Everton has six wins, one tie and only two losses in the nine EPL games since Donovan arrived -- including games against the league's top six teams.

Most press reports out of England suggest that Everton is resigned to losing the 28-year-old Donovan after Saturday's game, but he admits he'd like to stay with the Toffees.

"I have told the Galaxy what I want, they know what's going on and I speak to my manager [Bruce Arena] there fairly often and at this point it is an Everton and L.A. Galaxy conversation," he told the Guardian. "Both clubs know how I feel, which is that I would like to stay, though I can't end the season here, I'd have to go back April 15 at the latest. If that can be worked out, great. If not, then the Galaxy are my team and I'm very grateful for the chance I had here. It would be bittersweet either way."

Donovan has two goals and three assists for the Toffees.

Donovan's EPL Run:
1/9 at Arsenal 2-2 (1 assist)
1/16 Man. City 2-0
1/27 Sunderland 2-0 (1 goal)
1/30 at Wigan 1-0
2/6 at Liverpool 0-1
2/10 Chelsea 2-1 (1 assist)
2/20 Man. Utd. 3-1
2/28 at Tottenham 1-2
3/7 Hull City 5-1 (1 goal, 1 assist)
