Everton manager David Moyes has been so impressed by Landon Donovan since his loan move to Goodison Park that he is already considering a bid to permanently sign the USA forward, according to The People.

Donovan opened his Everton account with a goal against Sunderland in last week's 2-0 victory and Moyes has reportedly been very impressed with the player's attitude.

Donovan is the all time leading goalscorer in the MLS, is expected to lead the USA attack in the World Cup and LA Galaxy are unlikely to let him go easily.

However, Everton reportedly believe that a bid of around 3million would be enough to make him a permanent Toffees player.  They are particularly keen to do so with Louis Saha 's contract expiring at the end of the season.

A source close to Donovan told The People, "There is a big chance he will stay here permanently but it would have to be sorted after the World Cup."

Did not think he'd cost just 3 million. Pinch of salt of course...

Yeah, its cryptic thread title makes it harder to spot, although I think the other thread was about the NOTW.

If we wanted to extend his loan until the end of the season and we got the go ahead from LA Galaxy would it have to be done by tomorrow or can we do it b4 his loan ends?

Maybe I missed that one, but I don't think he would be going anywhere for that price. I thought there was a thread earlier that said there was a buyout clause for about 6 mil in his contract (which I'd say was a reasonable price).

I believe we can do it outside the transfer window.

I have not heard of such a clause, but I think it will take more than 3mil pounds to buy him.

Minimum 7 to 8 millions pounds.  He's on a brand new contract through 2013 for about 1.8 millions U.S. a year, and unless his contract give him the say on transfer at a set number he won't be going anywhere.  As other Americans have noted he has huge commercial value here in the U.S. 

If his form remains good through March he will end up in England, the WC will decide the final price.  Probably 8-12.  Anyway, will be an interesting story to follow.

So he has huge commercial value but then his appearances for us don't raise our profile in the US?  I am confused!
