Landon Donovan's loan move to Everton has been completed, sources confirmed to SBI on Thursday.

The U.S. national team star and Los Angeles Galaxy captain will join the Liverpool-based club when the transfer window opens on Jan. 1.

Donovan is being brought in to provide cover for an injury-depleted Everton offense that has struggled to produce goals this year. He will join U.S. national team goalkeeper Tim Howard on an Everton side that will be competing in the Europa League and FA Cup during Donovan's loan spell.

No details on the deal were available, but Donovan is expected to join Everton on a short-term loan deal that would see him return to the Los Angeles Galaxy in time for the start of the 2010 MLS season.

What do you think of this move? Think Donovan will make an impact at Everton? Anxious to see him match up against teams like Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal?
