American's finding new homes in January!

Landon Donovan, Damarcus Beasley and Eddie Johnston are looking like they will be living in new cities come January. Eddie Johnson has been named to a transfer list for his current squad Fulham FC in English Premier League. Johnson has been at Fulham for 2 years but has only appeared in 1 league game this year. Rumors are spreading he would either end up in Championship or MLS.

Everton are hopeful of agreeing a deal to sign United States star Landon Donovan on loan.

Everton chief executive Robert Elstone said: "Landon is a player David Moyes has identified as someone he would like to bring to the Club. We are working to make that happen and hope we can reach agreement soon with all the appropriate parties”.

If negotiations are successfully completed, the forward would join the Blues on January 2.

Still only 27, Donovan is his country's leading international goal-scorer and is also their most capped player with 120 appearances.

He can operate in a withdrawn striker's role, on the wing or as a more conventional attacking midfielder.

Along with David Beckham, he fired LA Galaxy to last month's final of the MLS Cup - the trophy contested by the top-placed league teams in the American competition.

Regarded as his nation's best ever player, Donovan won the MLS Most Valuable player and the Goal of the Year awards for the 2009 campaign, which concluded last month.

Donovan has previously played in Europe for Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen and would remain at Goodison Park until mid-March, joining fellow USA international Tim Howard.

According to the
Daily Mirror, Fulham boss Roy Hodgson looking to spring Rangers midfielder DaMarcus Beasley from Ibrox. Damarcus Beasley, the American left-winger, has previously expressed his wish to leave the Scottish club in pursuit of the regular game time he believes he needs to get into the USA's World Cup squad.
Beasley 27, played in the Premier League before with Manchester City, on loan from PSV Eindhoven. He has not featured for the U.S. national team since the summer, when a passing error in the Confederations Cup consigned him to the bench for the remainder of the tournament. Fulham features American Clint Dempsey, and previously also included Carlos Bocanegra, Brian McBride and Kasey Keller on the roster.
