DC United boss confirms Rooney interest

  DC United boss confirms Rooney interest DC United head coach Ben Olson has confirmed that his side are indeed interested in signing Everton forward Wayne Rooney, but he has insisted that a deal is far from done. It has been heavily reported by a plethora of outlets this week that Rooney’s future on Merseyside is uncertain, with DC United interested in signing Rooney as a marquee signing ahead of their move to Audi Field, a newly-built football-specific stadium. It was reported on Sky Sports earlier this week that a deal had been agreed in principle for the 32-year old, with a reported fee of around £12million having been agreed. When asked how the deal was going by a TMZ reporter at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Friday, as claimed by Sky Sports, Olson claimed he didn’t know what the reporter was talking about. When asked a second time though, Olson had this to say; “Certainly the deal is not done but obviously there is some interest from our end.” Rooney had previously been linked with a move to Major League Soccer, having had a number of offers last summer before electing to return to Goodison Park. But Sky Sports News now understands the deal to move to DC United was drafted over the past seven weeks. The agreement, which runs to the end of the MLS season in 2020, is yet to be signed, but Sky claim it would take a significant change of heart by Rooney and his family to stop the transfer going ahead.

Everton . Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is considering making a second approach for the former Holland international, but the Dutchman doesn’t believe the Catalan giants or Spurs would be the right fit for him and Liverpool could be.

The Dutchman replaces Roberto Martinez, after he was sacked by Everton in May. "Southampton Football Club can today confirm it has accepted the resignation of first team manager Ronald Koeman, and completed negotiations with Everton over his move to Goodison Park," the statement read.

PSV Eindhoven have confirmed Marcel Brands has left the club to join Everton as their new director of football.

The Dutchman is expected to take over the position that was held by Steve Walsh.

Walsh is expected to leave his post after a terrible set of transfers, which saw Everton spend the best part of £200m on signings that were, on the whole, very disappointing over the past season.

Wayne Rooney HAS NOT asked to leave Everton .
It was reported yesterday that Wayne Rooney had agreed a deal to join MLS side DC United in the summer, but Sam Allardyce says that he hasn’t asked for a move. Speaking at his press conferecne, the Everton manager said: “If any player wants to leave I’m comfortable with it. But let’s put it right, Wayne has not asked to leave.” Rooney only rejoined Everton last July after spending 13 successful seasons at Manchester United, but now the 32-year-old has apparently agreed a £12.5 million move to Major League Soccer. England’s all-time top goalscorer made 31 appearances for the Toffees this season, finishing as their top goalscorer on 11 goals. However, with Allardyce’s future still subject to speculation, Rooney could be making the move across the pond, where he will most likely end his career. The US transfer window doesn’t officially open until July so there may be a wait for the move to be announced, but at this moment in time, it looks likely to happen.
