I won't hinder Rooney if he wants to leave Everton, insists Allardyce

Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard played many times together for England

Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard played many times together for England

Rooney (calf) and Walcott (knee) missed last weekend's draw at home to Southampton but could be in line for a recall, and the former could be making his final Toffees appearance after he was linked with a move to MLS side DC United.

Wayne Rooney would reap the rewards from making a Stateside switch to MLS, believes former England and Manchester United team-mate Gary Neville.

"He (Rooney) has had an impact at Everton, yes, in a hard time for the squad and the turnaround last summer but we've all come through that - Wayne included".

Sky Sports News has reported that "a deal in principle" has been agreed between the Englishman and MLS franchise DC United for the player to join the club when the U.S. transfer window opens in July.

Should he decide to make the move eventually, there's no doubt the England legend will do well in the United States of America and he'll certainly bring the eventual club a tonne more of fans.

"I don't get involved in anything regarding transfers in and out or negotiations". "Where that lies and where Wayne lies with it I can't tell you at the moment".

"Wayne in himself, on a day to day basis, loves his football, he loves training, he wants to play and play well like everybody else".

"I'm comfortable with any player who wants to leave but let's get this clear".

"The headline isn't "Sam says Wayne Rooney can leave if he wants to".

Allardyce is targeting a top six finish next season. Allardyce said. "Because if they don't play well you can't select them and if they do play well then they stay in the team".

Allardyce's own situation is also uncertain following supporter unrest at recent performances but the 63-year-old showed every intention of staying at the club next season. That's it. Next season is already planned. Yet Rooney is only 32, six months younger than Ronaldo, who has a Champions League final and World Cup coming up, and only one year older than Teddy Sheringham when he joined United for what proved a golden period in his career.

"Lampard, [Patrick] Vieira. now you have Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], you have Wayne, so I hope he enjoys [it]", Mourinho said.
