Donovan granted work permit for Everton loan

December 23, 2009

United States international Landon Donovan has been granted a work permit and can now officially join Everton on loan next month.

A deal to bring the 27-year-old from Los Angeles Galaxy to Goodison Park for two and a half months was finalised between the two clubs on Friday.

However, Donovan, who has won 120 caps for his country, had to go through the formality of applying for his permit.

That has now been granted and he will join up with his new club on January 2.
