LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan's decision not to go on loan to a European club this winter will allow him to perform at his best in the 2011 MLS season.

The 28-year old USA international will not join an overseas club for a short stint as he did earlier this year with Everton and he feels that it may benefit him as he has been going flat-out for about two years.

"I have been playing nearly nonstop for the past two years, and I believe that this decision will allow me to perform at my best for the Galaxy and the national team throughout the coming year," Donovan said in a statement.

Donovan had been linked with a loan back to the Toffees as well as Fulham but will now concentrate on pre-season with the Galaxy.
