Donovan wins Everton's Player of the Month honors

For the second straight loan, Landon Donovan has performed at a high level for Everton, and for a second straight loan, he's been rewarded with the club's Player of the Month honors.

Donovan captured Everton's award for January, replicating the feat that he accomplished back in January of 2010. Donovan was credited with five assists in Everton's eight games during January. He played every minute of every one of those matches, starting on the right flank and injecting life into a previously dormant attack.

His final sendoff will be Saturday at Goodison Park, as Everton welcomes Blackpool for an FA Cup fifth-round battle. In his last finale for Everton, Donovan scored a goal and was carried by teammate Jack Rodwell toward the supporters, who serenaded him with chants of "USA!" He'll hope to end this loan spell in a similar fashion.

The loan might not be the end of his Everton career, though, as Donovan expressed an interest in returning to the club to in a recent interview with Reuters. He made it clear in his comments that he's firmly committed to the Galaxy until the end of his current contract, which has two years remaining on it.

What do you make of Donovan winning Everton's award again? Hope to see him one day move permanently to Everton?
