Newcastle United and Everton interested in loan deal for Landon Donovan
Landon Donovan, who’s currently in the MLS playoffs, could return again for a loan deal in the English Premier League. Donovan impressed with a loan deal last winter at Everton and does have the option in his Galaxy contract to allow for a move this winter.
Manager David Moyes has recently stated Donovan would return this upcoming January for another deal but its not a certainty. Donovan has had a very busy season with the World Cup, the stint with Everton, and the MLS season so it’s unclear if he’ll want any time off or be ready to go overseas.
While Donovan would likely go to Everton if he went overseas, Newcastle United have emerged as another possible team. They reportedly are interested in the American but would probably only happen if Everton declined a loan deal or they were to come up with the money for a transfer (estimated to be around 10-11 million pounds).
Either way, it seems a good chance Donovan will once again be in the EPL a few months and it’s not out of the question he could make a permanent move. If the Galaxy were to win the MLS Cup this season, then it’s more likely he’d lean toward more than a loan deal.
Donovan has accomplished virtually everything in MLS (titles, individual awards, et etc) and time is running out for him to play in the EPL. If he doesn’t make a move to Europe by the winter, then it’s probably not ever going to happen.
