Like all Evertonians, Phil Neville would love Landon Donovan to sign for Everton.
Captain Phil has revealed he is trying to persuade forward Landon Donovan to join the club. After two loan spells, Phil wants the USA legend to sign for us permanently.
Phil said: 'If there is a chance, I make sure that I try every time I speak to him.'
'That's the first thing I say to him. Toward the end of his spell back in January I even tried to kidnap him for a while and keep him in England!'
'I'm telling the truth here when I say the last two times he's been over he's totally transformed our season. He's the ultimate professional, he's got great quality, and the Everton fans love him.'
'He's a hero at Goodison Park, and he's played less than 20 games for us. I've played with some world-class right-sided players in my time, and he's up there with them.'
Go get him Phil!
