Donovan to Everton?

December 9, 2009 Leave a comment

The Guardian reports that David Moyes is pursuing Landon Donovan as a January transfer target. Blockquote!

A loan deal for Donovan would also suit Moyes in January. The Everton manager is unlikely to have money available for permanent signings and needs to bolster a squad depleted by several long-term injuries. The Scot has enjoyed success with loaned strikers from the MLS before, signing Brian McBride for a brief but productive spell during his first full season in charge, and while his needs are arguably greater in defence, Donovan’s versatility in attack would be welcome at Goodison Park.

My take? This would an excellent move for the 27-year-old. Donovan needs to go to a club that needs him and where he can compete for a starting position from day one. While I still think he’s more suited to the Spanish game, a loan spell to a side like Everton, under a manager like Moyes, would be pretty damn close to ideal. Let’s just hope he can stay healthy.
