LANDON DONOVAN will be another shrewd signing for David Moyes.

In fact, he'd have a little bet that his arrival could signal a change of fortunes all round at Goodison Park.

This is the sort of player who will have a positive influence on the place, he's a leader and a motivator and will be determined to have a real go during his time in England.

He could end up doing the running for Louis Saha, Yakubu and Jo, and that could be priceless in a squad that is bound to be feeling the effects of a dearth in numbers and a European and domestic campaign to cope with.

It's also a good idea to sign an American, as Tim Howard has proven.

They are proper sportsmen, real athletes who encompass the disciplines of preparation, diet and refuelling so central to the modern game.

One thing they have lacked over the years is quality - but this guy has it in abundance.
