Allardyce Says Rooney Free To Leave Everton

Allardyce Says Rooney Free To Leave Everton

There have been rumblings for a few weeks that Rooney was considering a move away during the upcoming summer transfer window - with plenty of interest from other MLS sides and a slight interest from China.

"The legacy he has brought to the Premier League, the goals, the trophies, everything he has done at Manchester United, England and here, he is an incredible player", Walcott told Sky Sports.

"I experienced the Wayne Rooney saga in my short period of time with the England camp, and it's all: "Why is Wayne Rooney doing this, why is he doing that". He can play in a couple of roles, he's a brilliant goalscorer and I still think he has got more to give".

DC United coach Ben Olsen has confirmed they have an interest in the former Manchester United forward. "And when that continues to happen, no matter who it is, whether it's Wayne, Phil Jagielka, Tom Davies or whoever, you get left out of the team", said Allardyce.

The 32-year-old scored 11 goals in the first half of the campaign but has struggled for consistent game-time under Toffees chief Sam Allardyce recently.

"Where that is, where that lies and where Wayne lies with it, I can't tell you at the moment". He added: "Wayne is a special player but if any player wants to leave they can, in my opinion".

Meanwhile, Allardyce is open to letting the former Three Lions skipper leave, saying earlier: "If the player wants to go - if any player wants to leave - then I'm comfortable with that".

However Allardyce insists that Rooney has not asked to leave Everton and dismissed suggestions of a potential fallout between the pair.

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.

Asked about planning for next season, the manager replied: "I've already done it".

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