Everton has reached an agreement in principle to bring Landon Donovan back to the English Premier League club on a short-term loan from the Los Angeles Galaxy. The agreement reached on Thursday is pending paperwork to be finalized, and has the American international arriving to Everton over the Christmas period ahead of a two-month loan.
 
Donovan would be eligible to play in Everton's game against Bolton Wanderers on Jan. 4, with the loan lasting until after the Merseyside derby against archrival Liverpool at Anfield on Feb. 25.

"I am delighted that we have managed to get Landon back," said Everton coach David Moyes. "He will give us some good experience over January and February. He did well for us when he was over two years ago and hopefully will return with those same qualities. His season has just finished and like last time we need him to hit the ground running because the games come thick and fast at this time of year."

(In 2010, Donovan spent 10 weeks on loan to Everton. He scored two goals and made three assists in 10 games during a run in which the Toffees, which had been struggling, won six games, including wins over Chelsea and Manchester United.)
