The Los Angeles Galaxy issued a statement on Thursday afternoon regarding the Landon Donovan loan move to Everton that we reported earlier today as being a done deal. The Galaxy has denied that a deal has been reached.
Here is the team's statement:
“We are aware of Everton’s interest in Landon Donovan, as they are one of a number of clubs who have contacted the Galaxy about the possibility of a short term loan agreement for Landon. The Galaxy, MLS and Landon’s representative will work together to determine if and whether an arrangement with Everton or any other club would be beneficial to all parties.”
I will stand by my earlier report that that the sides have reached an agreement on a deal.
