Rooney considering Everton stay

Wayne Rooney could be set to remain at Everton following Sam Allardyce’s dismissal, according to Talksport.

The former England captain had been linked with a move to MLS side DC United but is now set for talks with the Merseyside club after Allardyce was dismissed after just six months in charge.

Rooney returned to Goodison Park in the summer after thirteen years with Manchester United, during which time he racked up over five hundred and fifty appearances, won eleven major honours and became the club’s all-time top scorer.

He played forty times for the Toffees in all competitions last season, scoring eleven goals – ten of coming in the Premier League.

He is the second highest goal scorer in the division’s history but is fifty-two behind Alan Shearer.

He has been capped one hundred and sixteen times for his country – more than any other outfield player – but announced his international retirement back in August.
