Everton striker poised to make surprise exit

Wayne Rooney will reportedly play his last game for Everton on Sunday after agreeing a deal with MLS side DC United in principle.

England's all-time leading goalscorer made a triumphant return to Goodison Park on a free transfer last summer, 13 years after leaving for Manchester United, signing a two-year contract.

The 32-year-old looks set to end the season as the club's top goalscorer, having netted 11 times, although he has failed to have the major impact on the pitch overall that the Toffees had been hoping for.

It is now being reported that Sunday's final game of the season at West Ham will be Rooney's last for Everton after agreeing to make the move stateside.

Several MLS teams are understood to have offered Rooney a way out of Everton, with the striker having reportedly fallen out with manager Sam Allardyce, and he has opted to join DC United in a deal worth £12million.

Rooney has agreed terms on a two-year deal worth a reported £300,000 per week and, while he has yet to put pen to paper, it is understood it would take a major change of heart for him to remain at Everton.
