Allardyce in the dark over Rooney situation

Everton manager Sam Allardyce says Wayne Rooney's representatives have held talks with DC United over a move for the former England captain to Major League Soccer.

According to the BBC, the Everton striker has agreed a deal in principle with Washington-based side DC United for a reported fee of £12.5 million (R208 million).

No announcement on Rooney's future will be made until July 10, when the MLS transfer window opens, but it would be no surprise if he chose to follow a trail favoured by ageing pros.

Sam Allardyce has denied Wayne Rooney has asked to leave Everton but insisted the former England captain can not be given assurances over his playing time at Goodison Park.

Wayne Rooney's "one-last hurrah" with boyhood club Everton should have been a triumphant way of bowing-out after a stellar career with Manchester United and England.

Allardyce and Rooney appear to have had their differences and the player's show of dissent when substituted in April's Merseyside derby resulted in clear-the-air talks. "But at the end of the day, the players have still done it on the pitch, I can't argue with that".

Earlier this week, Lalas told us he wasn't too pumped about the MLS team working on a deal with Rooney - because the guy's essentially a has-been. As to clarity of whether Wayne is leaving or staying, I'll find out when he comes in for training today.

Rooney, Everton's leading goalscorer this season, has become increasingly frustrated with a reduced role under Allardyce. If the player wants to leave - if any player does - I'm comfortable with it.

But the manager insinuated in a press conference that Rooney could leave the club he joined just past year if he wants to.

"It is up to them to put their game together on a consistent basis and those are the ones who then play every week because they keep their position in the team by what they produce".

The fans have grown increasingly restless over Allardyce's style of play, and a mass walk-out at last weekend's final home game of the season has prompted boardroom fears supporters will stay away next season if he is retained - hitting revenues badly.

'I don't get involved in anything regarding transfers or negotiations. I don't want to create the headline'. I've already [planned for next season].
