Sam Allardyce talks about Everton's priorities heading into summer

Tuesday, 15 May, 2018

Rooney returned to his boyhood club ahead of this season after a trophy-laden 13 years at Manchester United but could be set to move on once more.

"My understanding of the situation is there seems to have been some negotiation somewhere along the line".

"In terms of clarity of whether Wayne is staying or leaving, I'll find out a little more later when he comes into training", the coach added. I don't get involved in anything regarding transfers in or out or negotiations.

It is understood he has played his last game in the Premier League before he is due to sign for MLS side DC United.

Sam Allardyce expects to hold talks with Farhad Moshiri next week, when he will discover whether he is to continue as Everton manager.

"We talk to the player about that situation, whoever it might be, and say levels have to be lifted".

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.

"Everyone knows he's not the player he was 10 years ago, and they know they're not going to get the Wayne Rooney of even five years ago", Lalas, who played 96 times for America, told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

"There were days when Wayne Rooney was young, he would play for the first team then he would go back and be out kicking the ball with his pals in the street".

One year on, it may be even more hard to succeed. "Like I said, I'd love him to stay here".

As for whether uncertainty about his future at the club might affect his planning for next season, Allardyce replied: "I've already done it".
