It looks like most of the info you need for an MLA citation is contained in your APA citation.  There will need to be some formatting changes, though.

The one difference that I see is that with MLA, you will also need the name of the database, e.g. Academic Search Complete, that you found it on the 'Web' and the date that you last read the article on the EBSCO site.  If you know which database you used, the easiest way may be to go to that database, search based on the title and author, then  use their tools to create the citation.  If your search brings up more than one article, you can limit by the Publication name.

I am using our Cite APA (link below) and Cite MLA (link below) LibGuides to check the differences between the two citation styles.  Each of those pages includes a tab 'Cite the Easy Way' which will give you some assistance in formatting citations you find in EBSCO or other databases.
