Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave Everton, according to manager Sam Allardyce.

Understands Rooney has agreed a £12m move in principle to MLS side DC United and Allardyce said he will speak to the former England captain on Friday about his future plans.

“My understanding is there seems to have been some negotiation along the line but as for clarity as to whether Wayne is staying or going we’ll see later on,” Allardyce said.

“I don’t get involved in transfers but there seems to be an interest from DC United. Only when I speak to him today I’ll find out where the situation lies.

“I’m comfortable with any player who wants to leave but let’s get this clear. Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has Wayne Rooney had a confrontation with me.

“We have not been in any difficult situations with me. We are two adults and we talk.”
