Rooney seals Everton return

Wayne Rooney has completed his move back to Everton from Manchester United, rejoining his boyhood club 13-years after leaving.

Rooney departed in 2004 and went on to become a legend at Old Trafford becoming their top goalscorer of all time and bagged over 250 goals for The Red Devils.

Now Rooney has agreed a two-year deal back at Everton, with United allowing him to move on a free transfer.

“It is some time since I said that the only Premier League club I would play for other than Manchester United was Everton, so I am delighted that the move has happened,” Rooney said.

“Thirteen years ago I went to United with the intention of winning trophies and I have been fortunate to be a part of one of the most successful periods in the club’s history.

“I have come back to Everton because I believe Ronald Koeman is building a team that can win something and I look forward to playing my part in making that a reality for the club I have supported since a boy.”

United boss Jose Mourniho paid tribute to Rooney and said: “It is no secret that I have long been an admirer of Wayne; he has been a model professional throughout his time at the club and will remain in the history books for many years to come.

“It is never easy to see a great player playing less football than he would like and I could not stand in his way when he asked to go back to Everton. His experience, focus and determination will be missed and I wish him well for the future.”

With Rooney is heading back to his boyhood club he is 11/10 with bet365 to score nine or more top flight goals for Everton this season, 6/4 to notch against Manchester United and 100/1 to be the top Premier League scorer of 2017/18.
