Toffees skipper claims USA talisman wants Goodison Park move...
The USA midfielder featured 13 times, scoring twice, for the Toffees while on a five month loan from his parent club Los Angeles Galaxy last season.
Although Everton boss David Moyes was keen to bring the 28-year-old to Merseyside, a deal failed to be reached for the USA captain.
However, after commentating during Everton's 1-0 pre-season friendly victory over Australian side Sydney FC, Neville confessed his former team-mate would welcome a move back to the Premier League.
"Definitely. The World Cup was probably a bad thing for Everton, his price will have gone up by £5 or £6 million," Neville told EvertonTV.
"I’ve spoken to Landon [Donovan] and I know for a fact that he wants to come back here [Everton]."
Donovan starred for USA during their unexpected run into the second round of World Cup 2010, where they topped England's group before being eliminated by Ghana.
