American striker Landon Donavon has revealed that he would love to return for a third spell at Everton, after admitting he ‘misses’ Merseyside.

The Los Angeles Galaxy star was a big fans’ favourite at Goodison Park in his previous two loan stints at the club in 2010 and 2012. With the MLS season over till March, Donavon is eyeing another loan move to maintain his current fitness.

USA boss Jurgen Klinnsman wants his best players to go out on loan to maintain their fitness and form with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil on the horizon.

A possible return to the Premier League with the Toffees is being mentioned and recent reports suggest that talks between the player’s agent and the club are at an advanced stage.

The 31-year-old told the Daily Mirror: “I would absolutely love to go back – and there’s no doubt I will at some point.

“I miss the people. I miss the players a lot, and I miss just the positive energy of the fans walking into the stadium and how much they care about the club.”

Everton boss Roberto Martinez is thought to be open to the move, to boost his side’s goal-scoring exploits as they chase a European finish in the Premier League.

The Toffees moved up to fourth place in the table on Saturday after a 4-0 thumping of Stoke City at Goodison, level on points with Liverpool and Chelsea, although that could all change depending on results on Sunday with a host of teams in action.
