Landon Donovan Expresses Interest in Future Return to Everton

Landon Donovan told Sky Sports News in an interview that he wouldn't mind coming back to Goodison.

"I may go back someday," he said. "If I get the opportunity one day and they want me back I would definitely think about it."

Donovan is having a very good start to his season with the L.A. Galaxy. Landon leads the MLS in assists and last week was named the Player of the Week in the North American league.

The Galaxy have the best record in the league with seven wins and a draw in their first 8 games.

Of course, right now the American International has the World Cup on his mind. He is the leader of the American squad that will, of course, be in the same group with England.

Donovan is the U.S. all-time leader in goals and assists, and his 120+ caps are more than any other active American player. He is also the captain of the team.

The U.S. figures to join England in making it out of Group C, ahead of Algeria and Slovenia.

"Anything beyond that (getting out of the group stage)," Landon told Sky Sports, "will be icing on the cake. We are hopeful, but it will be hard."

The USA squad also features Toffee keeper Tim Howard, who is the starting keeper for the Americans.

Donovan will return to the Galaxy after the World Cup. The MLS season runs through November. The earliest we could see Donovan back in Everton blue would be in January.

Given Landon's words, it doesn't seem all that impossible that it could happen.
