Everton are in talks to bring USA international striker Landon Donovan to Goodison Park on loan from LA Galaxy.

With the Major League Soccer season having finished, the Toffees are keen to strike a deal similar to the one which will see Donovan's team-mate David Beckham head back to AC Milan next month.

David Moyes is eager to bolster his squad for the second half of the season with Everton hit hard by injuries and struggling towards the wrong end of the Premier League table.

The experienced forward, who is set to captain his country at the World Cup this summer when USA will meet England, spent a similar spell with Bayern Munich last season.

"Landon is a player David Moyes has identified as someone he would like to bring to the club," chief executive Robert Elstone told the club's official website.

"We are working to make that happen and hope we can reach agreement soon with all the appropriate parties."

Donovan could join his new team-mates on 2nd January if negotiations are successful before heading back to Los Angeles in March for the new MLS campaign.
