Howard sweet on Donovan deal

The Premier League club are in talks to sign Donovan on a

short-term loan deal from LA Galaxy when the transfer window

reopens next month. There is competition for Donovan’s services and

Toffees boss David Moyes was reluctant to discuss the deal ahead of

the 3-3 draw at Chelsea on Saturday. However, Howard outlined the

qualities his compatriot would bring to Goodison Park and believes

Donovan could make an impact at the club. “From playing with him in

the USA team I know he is a tremendous player,” Howard told the

club’s official website. “He’d be a good addition to any team and

particularly this team. He is a star, he really is. “He is a

friend, but he is also a top quality player and the more of those

we can bring in the better. “Donovan can bring several strengths to

the team. He can play wide right and underneath the strikers, he

has got good pace with the ball and he runs and runs all day long!

“He’s got a fantastic touch with both his left and right. He can

cross the ball well and shoot the ball well – he has got a bunch of

attributes that mean he’ll do well in the Premier League.”
