With new contract deal, Landon Donovan not interested in heading on offseason loans

By Adam Serrano

CARSON, Calif. -- Landon Donovan has re-signed a new multi-year deal with the LA Galaxy, but don't look for him to pursue any offseason loans in the future. 

Donovan has gone on loans in the past to Bayern Munich during the 2008-09 season as well as a pair of loans to Everton in 2010 and 2012, but the U.S. international admitted after his contract announcement press conference that he's unlikely to go on loan again. 

"It's not really something that I'm interested in," said Donovan. "I want to be here and I don't have a real desire to go try anything or do anything. They've committed to me and I want to commit to this team too." 

In a teleconference call with reporters, Donovan was asked about his former Everton head coach David Moyes who is now the head man at Manchester United. Rumors have swirled that Donovan would be on Moyes' shortlist at United, but when asked about any conversations that he's had if with the Scottish head coach, Donovan didn't go into specifics, but dropped a hint. 

“I’m not going to comment on specific conversations I may have had with David in the past," said Donovan. "But…we’ll say I had talks with some very high profile teams in England, how’s that?”
