LA Galaxy’s Landon Donovan has expressed his desire at seeing Robbie Rogers join the club.

The 25-year old winger, who quit the game in February, is training with the MLS champions and Donovan says he would love to see the former Columbus Crew and Leeds United winger agree to a deal.

“It was fun to play with him,” said Donovan, who has played I the USA team with Rogers.

“He's been out awhile, so it's going to take him a while to get back into it, and he would admit that, but hopefully he does well.

"My personal hope is that we'll sign him and that they can find out a way to work a trade with Chicago (who currently hold his MLS rights).

"I think beyond the immediate soccer part, I think there's much bigger positive consequences that can come from that, and we're all hopeful that he'll get fit and play well and that Bruce [Arena] wants to sign him.”
