Everton put together disaster talks as they try to cease Rooney leaving

Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard played many times together for England

Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard played many times together for England

Of greater significance, however, is the fact that Rooney seems destined to leave the club for DC United in the summer.

However, despite the 32-year-old keen on a switch to the States, Allardyce wanted to make it clear that he didn't hand in a transfer request while also admitting he didn't know the full dealings of the saga.

"For me, Wayne Rooney doesn't move the needle", Lalas said. We still, I think, need another goalscorer that gets 15 or more goals in the Premier League next season because the goal tally has to be at a certain level to achieve sixth and we are way below that level at this moment in time.

But 12 months on he may face more embarrassing questions about his nightwear if his decision to agree a "deal in principle" with DC United leads to a move to the MLS.

"Only when I speak to him later today will I find out where the situation lies. Where that lies and where Wayne lies with it I can't tell you at the moment". "We are two adults and we talk".

He rejoined Everton in July 2017 and scored 11 goals before Christmas but has not been an automatic pick for Allardyce in recent weeks. "He isn't anxious about the money, he just wants to play football".

"Everyone knows he's not the player he was 10 years ago, and they know they're not going to get the Wayne Rooney of even five years ago", Lalas, who played 96 times for America, told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

Allardyce insisted yesterday that Rooney, who will not feature in...

"If you watch Lionel Messi play football in a live game you can not believe how many times he stands still in a football match".

"I have a contract".

"There were days when Wayne Rooney was young, he would play for the first team then he would go back and be out kicking the ball with his pals in the street".
