Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave Everton, says Sam Allardyce

The 32-year-old striker, England and Manchester United's greatest goal scorer, is said to be considering the Washington-based club if he decides to leave Everton for a second time.

Rooney underwent treatment on a minor knee injury at the club's Finch Farm training base on Friday and made a decision to leave when the squad of fit players headed out for their afternoon session.

But 12 months on he may face more embarrassing questions about his nightwear if his decision to agree a "deal in principle" with DC United leads to a move to the MLS.

Only when I speak to him today [Friday] will I find out where the situation lies.

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

Theo Walcott would love Wayne Rooney to stay at Everton as the former England captain weighs up a switch to DC United in MLS.

North Korea Announces Plan to Dismantle Nuclear Site
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has taken a series of steps this year to ease tensions with the U.S. and he is set to meet U.S. The Workers' Party of Korea said in a resolution adopted last month that North Korea will dismantle the nuclear test site.

"Wayne is the leading goalscorer but quite a few of those are penalties so that is the main aim if you are going to finish higher in the league". We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'.

While Rooney remains top of the Toffees' goalscoring charts, with 11 to his name this season, he hasn't netted since mid-December and it's been suggested that he is eager to leave Goodison Park this summer.

"If you watch Lionel Messi play football in a live game you can not believe how many times he stands still in a football match".

Wayne Rooney looks likely to have already played his last game for Everton.

"I have had to come here and work hard and get fit, make sure that I keep performing to play well". Until someone tells me I'm no longer wanted then I have a contract. Fair play to him, he could probably have stayed at Man Utd and drifted in and out but he's gone back to his boyhood club.
