Moyes: Donovan too pricey for us

Published Add your comment

Everton boss David Moyes has ruled out signing Los Angeles Galaxy striker Landon Donovan because he is too expensive.

The 28-year-old impressed during a three-month loan spell at Goodison Park last season and said recently he is keen to return.

But Moyes is quoted in The Guardian as saying: "We'd love to have Landon but he looks too expensive for us and we just don't have it."

He added: "We don't have the finances. The price they want for him is very big and it's an additional problem because of his age."

Donovan is thought to be valued at around £10million.

Everton have signed three players this summer but paid a fee for only one - £1million on Magaye Gueye.
