Wayne Rooney has completed his move from Everton to DC United in MLS.
The former England captain departs Goodison Park after just one season back at his boyhood club, signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with DC.
Rooney has long been linked with a switch to MLS and reports emerged late on Wednesday that he had agreed to sign for DC.
The 32-year-old then posted a picture on his Twitter page from an aeroplane on Thursday as he departed for the United States, before both clubs confirmed the transfer.
Rooney will occupy a designated player spot on DC’s roster, to which he will be officially added to when the international transfer window opens on July 10.
A distinguished career in the Premier League saw Rooney become Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer between two spells with Everton, while he is also England’s top marksman in international football.
Rooney joins a DC side currently toiling at the bottom of the Eastern Conference in MLS ahead of the opening of their new Audi Field Stadium on July 14.
