Los Angeles Galaxy star Landon Donovan won Major League SoccerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s scoring title after scoring in the 2-2 draw with FC Dallas.
Donovan scored his 20th goal of the season when he converted a penalty kick in the 79th minute in the match on Sunday at the Home Depot Center.
The 26-year-old striker has also managed to get nine assists this season.
Edson Buddle scored the other goal for the Galaxy.
Donovan has scored 98 regular-season goals during his time in the MLS and is the highest-paid American player in the league, but now he is ready to move on.
The former Bayer Leverkusen striker admitted yesterday that he is keen on a move back to Europe.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d love to play in the Premiership, I think that would be incredible,Ã¢â‚¬Â Donovan said.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d love to play in Spain.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Whether that happens I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know but I think where my qualities are best would be in a team that plays. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to go and battle John Terry and expect to win but if I can get on a team that plays good soccer I think I could help.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Donovan added on a move to England: Ã¢â‚¬Å“I watch games every weekend and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s exciting watching those games and I think I could contribute on a lot of teams.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It would be a much easier fit than most places, for sure.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Obviously, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of ifs. If the Galaxy is okay with me going, if the League is willing to accept an offer, if an offer comes.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“In my situation I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be super picky but if itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the right offer and makes sense with the right team – thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a lot of ifs.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“But from my standpoint IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m ready to take that step and I want to.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Competitively I have that itch and I want to go and I will make that very clear to people.Ã¢â‚¬Â
