Sam Allardyce says Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave Everton, but he can offer no guarantees the former England captain will be a regular starter if both remain at the club next season.

The 32-year-old re-joined Everton from Manchester United to great fanfare last summer, but the return to his boyhood club has not worked out as he planned.

However, he did add that negotiations with the MLS club have taken place.

He looks set to play his final game in England this Sunday at West Ham.

A volcano in Hawaii , threatening to blow its top, has been sputtering lava for a week, and it's left some devastating results. It would be "very, very hazardous" if a volcanic vent opened under the facility where the fuel is stored, the governor said.


"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", the manager said.

"In MLS you have always some iconic players that are going to end their careers there", said Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, who coached Rooney in his final season at Old Trafford.

Allardyce did confirm that Rooney has held talks with DC United.

Rooney rejoined Everton in July 2017 and scored 11 goals before Christmas but has not been an automatic pick for Allardyce in recent weeks.

Wayne Rooney has reportedly told Everton he wants to join Major League Soccer side DC United this summer.

Rooney's representatives traveled to Washington to negotiate terms last week and it appears an agreement has been reached.

Despite the club easing early-season relegation worries, discord between fans and new manager Sam Allardyce has made conditions hard, with the star unhappy at being withdrawn on a number of occasions in the second half of the season. "It's up to the player to put their game together on a consistent basis every week and keep their place in the team". Wayne is so level-headed.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce hopes to sit down with Everton's billionaire backer Farhad Moshiri this week to sort out his own future.
