Donovan gets work permit to play in Premier League

BY foxsports • December 22, 2009

Landon Donovan has been given the work permit he needs to play in Britain during his loan at Premier League club Everton.

The Los Angeles Galaxy star easily met the criteria for the permit because he has played 120 times for the United States and has captained his country.

The permit was granted at a hearing Tuesday, freeing the midfielder to begin his 2 1/2-month loan from Major League Soccer as planned on Jan. 2.
