Everton star wants Rooney to stay at Goodison Park

'The deal is not done but there is some interest from our end, ' DC United coach Ben Olsen told American website TMZ.

Allardyce is open to allowing the striker to leave the club at the end of the season and revealed that talks between Rooney and D.C. United have been ongoing but he is yet to inform the club of his decision. Earlier it was expected that Rooney will stay with his boyhood club for quite some time.

Everton manager Sam Allardyce admits Wayne Rooney's future at the club is far from clear but he would not stand in the player's way of a summer move to DC United.

However, despite the 32-year-old keen on a switch to the States, Allardyce wanted to make it clear that he didn't hand in a transfer request while also admitting he didn't know the full dealings of the saga.

Allardyce said: "Let's put this right, Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has Wayne Rooney had any confrontation with me or been in any hard situation in the time since I've been here because we are two adults and we talk".


Wayne Rooney has top-scored for Everton with 11 goals this season.

Everything came to a head last month when he was substituted little more than halfway through successive games against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Allardyce muttered darkly about not being able to play him alongside Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton's other marquee summer signing, while at the same time complaining that Rooney did not get into the box enough. "We are two adults and we talk". Wayne is the leading goalscorer but quite a few of those are penalties, so the main aim if you are going to finish higher up in the league is how many goals can your team score.

Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has he had a confrontation with me.

"I have a contract - a one-year contract".
