Everton are ready to bring LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan back to Goodison Park for the new season.

Donovan, who scored twice in a three-month loan spell at Everton last season, is back on David Moyes' radar, with the Scot hoping to seal a permanent deal for the 28-year-old.

Moyes wanted to keep Donovan for longer but LA Galaxy ruled out a move - although the Toffees boss is determined to get him again.

An insider at Goodison told the News of the World: "The manager was really impressed with Landon and tried to keep him at the club.

"There's always a chance of him coming back but it's a question of what LA Galaxy want."
