A £12.5million deal has now been agreed in precept for Rooney to maneuver to DC United when the MLS switch window opens in July however, in what would signify a dramatic U-turn, Everton could now ask Rooney to remain.

Everton head coach Sam Allardyce said Friday that forward Wayne Rooney, rumoured to be negotiating a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit D.C. United, has not officially requested to leave the Merseyside club.

Rooney has reportedly come to an agreement to join the MLS club in the summer after this season back at boyhood club Everton.

Everton have invited Wayne Rooney's representatives for disaster talks over the previous England captain's future.

Rooney may not appear to be the player that he was at the peak of his powers, but it is not surprising that Kenwright believes that letting him go could be a mistake by the Toffees.

Speaking to American website TMZ, Olsen said: "The deal is not done but there is some interest from our end".

The agreement, which runs to the end of the MLS season in 2020, is yet to be signed, but SSN understands it would take a significant change of heart by Rooney and his family to stop the transfer going ahead.

"Wayne has been a great player, one of the best players to grace the last era of football", said West Ham United manager David Moyes, who gave Rooney his debut at Everton, and also managed him at Manchester United.

"There is an area we need to improve and that is goals".

The Englishman is well loved by the club's supporters but his class doesn't impress many others who perhaps don't watch him on a regular basis.

When first asked about the deal, Olson told reporters in the USA: "I don't know what you're talking about".
