LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan is open to a permanent move to Everton.

The American ace admits he would love to join the club on a permanent transfer but insists he would not leave the Galaxy until his deal with them was over.

"It would be hard to go to any other club now so if anything were to happen I would imagine it would be here at Everton," Donovan told Reuters.

"I know for sure this year I'm going back to LA but we'll see.

"My commitment is for two more years to the Galaxy and we'll see what happens after this year but I would obviously welcome the opportunity to come back."
