Widespread reports this lunchtime claim Rooney has agreed a deal in principle to swap Everton for DC United.

A report in the Washington Post this week said there have been serious talks between Rooney and DC United, with a transfer fee of around £12million suggested.

DC United are now bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference table having collected five points from seven games. There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan.

Everton spent nearly £200 million on players for then-manager Ronald Koeman last summer but it failed to have the desired effect, and Allardyce wants to prune a bloated squad before being more targeted in their transfer activity.

However, Rooney's signing will also likely add to the often-repeated criticism of MLS as a whole as being a retirement league, a place for over-the-hill players to correct one final big paycheck.

Toffees boss Sam Allardyce recently confirmed that while he wanted the legendary forward to stay put at the club, a "massive offer" could be enough to convince the player to depart for pastures anew.

Everton's Wayne Rooney is waiting to see what happens with the club's managerial situation before deciding what he does with his future, according to the Guardian.

"He can play in a few roles, he's a brilliant goalscorer, and I still think he's got a lot to give".

Rooney signed a two-year contract when he rejoined boyhood club Everton last summer from Manchester United on a free transfer.
