CARSON, Calif. (AP) -- Landon Donovan has signed a multiyear contract extension with the Los Angeles Galaxy, keeping the high-scoring U.S. national team star with his MLS club.

The Galaxy announced the deal Wednesday with Donovan, whose current contract was up at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Donovan has been with the Galaxy since 2005, winning three of his five career MLS Cup titles with Los Angeles. He is the third-leading goal-scorer in MLS history, trailing leader Jeff Cunningham by just three goals.

Donovan also is the U.S. national team's career scoring leader, playing in the last three World Cups.

He took a self-imposed sabbatical after the Galaxy's MLS Cup victory last December, only returning to the Galaxy in late March. He also returned to U.S. national team play last month.
