And now it is claimed England's record goalscorer has agreed to leave Everton in a £12.5million move to U.S. capital-based team DC United.

Earlier this week, Everton manager Sam Allardyce said he wanted England's and Manchester United's record goalscorer to see out the final year of his contract next season.

Rooney has appeared frustrated with an increasingly peripheral role at Everton, having made a bright start to his second spell at the club by scoring 11 goals before Christmas.

Rooney's salary has not been confirmed but it is understood he will be the highest player at the club, with the deal set to keep him there until the end of the 2020 season. DC United looked at bringing Robin van Persie Stateside in January and have remained in the hunt for a marquee striker with global pull.

He said the issue "speaks to discrimination" and was the first time that's happened to him, adding that USA officials apologised. But the minister says his position should not have mattered and that procedures were not followed properly in the incident.

"There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas", Allardyce told TalkSport.

Rooney re-joined Everton in July 2017 and is halfway through a two-year deal.

Allardyce is said to be open to the idea of selling Rooney after indicating he will not be able to give him regular game time next season.

Rooney is waiting to see who will be the manager at Everton next season before deciding on his next move.

Sky Sports reported that the deal was drafted over the last several weeks and included several visits to the United States by Rooney's agent Paul Stretford.

With D.C. United moving into their long-awaited soccer specific stadium at Audi Field this July, having Rooney on board when the MLS transfer window opens in July would surely be ideal timing for them to make a splash.

Wazza, 32, is crossing the pond to join the L.A. Galaxy's Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 36, and the Chicago Fire's Bastian Schweinsteiger, 33, in American MLS. While Rooney gets to continue to play regularly, and Everton begin to build for the future.

"At the moment he is an Everton fan as well as an Everton player so I wouldn't consider anything is on the cards at the moment".
