Donovan completes Everton switch
Everton have confirmed the signing of United States striker Landon Donovan on a short-term loan deal.
Donovan will join the Merseyside club in the January transfer window having been granted permission by Los Angeles Galaxy.
The 27-year-old will increase manager David Moyes' selection options during a season which has seen the Merseysiders hampered by injuries throughout the season.
Moyes said: "Landon Donovan will join Everton. It is all agreed and done now and hopefully he will be with us on January 1 or 2.
"Hopefully he is the first of two or three we want to bring in in January.
"We need to strengthen our squad to make sure we are not in a situation like we have at the moment with so many injuries.
"Landon will certainly add pace, he is a good finisher.
"He was voted best player, yet again, in the American league and is captain of the USA national team.
"I need players who can hit the ground running, who I think can go into the team quite quickly and make an impact.
"With his experience and the goals he has scored, I am hoping he will be able to do that."
