Everton boss David Moyes is set to shop in the loan market in January.

LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan being lined up for a temporary deal by Moyes.

And the Guardian says a loan deal for Donovan would also suit Moyes in January. The Everton manager is unlikely to have money available for permanent signings and needs to bolster a squad depleted by several long-term injuries.

The Scot has enjoyed success with loaned strikers from the MLS before, signing Brian McBride for a brief but productive spell during his first full season in charge, and while his needs are arguably greater in defence, Donovan's versatility in attack would be welcome at Goodison Park.
