I won't hinder Rooney if he wants to leave Everton, insists Allardyce

Wayne Rooney would benefit from experiencing different cultures and environments in the United States says Gary Neville

"Wayne's got a different physique", said Ferguson when Rooney broke Sir Bobby Charlton's United goal record.

Ben Olsen, the DC United coach, said yesterday: "The deal is not done but there is some interest from our end".

West Ham boss Moyes was in charge at Everton as Rooney progressed through the ranks and handed the 16-year-old his debut in 2002.

"I am always comfortable if any player wants to leave or if any player doesn't want to leave".

The Washington Post, citing an unnamed source close to DC United, reported that the chances of Rooney coming to the U.S. capital are "50-50" and that no formal agreement had been reached.

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

"My understanding is that there has been some negotiations".

Everton striker Theo Walcott says team-mate Wayne Rooney has nothing to prove amid speculation he is set to leave the club for a move to the United States.

"We still, I think, need another goalscorer that gets 15 or more goals in the Premier League next season".

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

Rooney's apparent decision to see out his career elsewhere suggests he is not even bothering to discover how Allardyce's own Goodison Park power struggle plays out, with many supporters keen for a new manager to be brought in this summer.

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

Allardyce said: "How as a manager can you guarantee anyone to play? It is up to them to put their game together on a consistent basis". Wayne is so level-headed.

One year on, it may be even more hard to succeed.

"I have a contract. It's done, it's there", he said.

"You would need at least two players to be at the 15 mark and you need the midfielders and wide players to be in the sevens to tens".
