Everton forward Wayne Rooney agrees 'deal in principle' to join DC United

Wayne Rooney has agreed a deal in principle that could see him leave Everton for Major League Soccer side DC United this summer in a 12.5 million pounds deal. Rooney's representatives have been in the US to negotiate terms and the former England skipper is willing to leave the Premier League club.

It is understood Rooney has been offered a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season. Earlier this week, Allardyce said Rooney wants to stay and dismissed suggestions England's record goal scorer is frustrated with his role.
