LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena insists that star duo Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez will not be going out on loan this winter.

LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena insists that star duo Landon Donovan and Omar Gonzalez will not be going out on loan this winter.

Key forward Donovan and centre-back Gonzalez have been linked with offseason moves to Europe but Arena says that no Galaxy player will be heading anywhere after a tough 2013 for both club and country.

"Our players aren't going anywhere," he said on a podcast on the Galaxy’s official website. "Even though we argue that the [offseason] layoff is going to be too long, he (Gonzalez) can go in camp with the US national team in January, along with Landon Donovan.

"Our players have had a really tough run this year, in particular Robbie [Keane] and Omar with all their requirements with national teams.

"They've had a full 11 months of play and they need some time off and then they need to get back here in LA and be ready for a challenging campaign that includes in the beginning not only the league but the [CONCACAF] Champions League."
