LANDON Donovan admits he has been “overwhelmed” by the support Everton fans have given him since his loan move from LA Galaxy.

The 28-year-old has been a massive hit at Goodison Park prompting Everton fans to start a Facebook campaign to get him to stay on Merseyside.

Donovan is expected to return to LA Galaxy next month but hopes to return to David Moyes' side in the future.

“Since the day I got here, the fans have been fantastic,” he told evertonTV. “I was really overwhelmed by how many people were aware that I was coming and knew who I was and said 'welcome to Everton'.

“That's been the same with the team, the manager's been great - everybody's been fantastic. I think not only as a person but as a footballer as well, when you feel that it makes it a lot easier to perform on the field.

“I'm enjoying every day that I'm here. Every day that goes by makes me think that I want to stay here, but we'll see what happens.

“I would definitely imagine that I will be back here at some point in my life. I think it's been an incredible experience and away from football, the people have been extremely nice.

“That being said, I do miss LA, I miss my team-mates there, I miss the sunshine. That'd be nice to get back there too.”
