Allardyce sets Everton transfer rumour straight - 'Let's put this right'

Rooney, capped 119 times by England, rejoined his boyhood club Everton at the start of the season on a two-year deal after 13 trophy-laden years at Manchester United.

Everton striker Theo Walcott says team-mate Wayne Rooney has nothing to prove amid speculation he is set to leave the club for a move to the United States.

"I don't get involved in transfers or negotiations".

The Croxteth-born player is believed to have been offered a contract until the end of the 2020 MLS season, although the U.S. transfer window only opens in July.

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

Allardyce said "Wayne is a special player but if any player wants to leave they can, in my opinion".

With Wayne Rooney being linked to a move to MLS, the FC panel discuss which destination will suit the Evertonian best in the twilight of his career. "Glasgow is a tough city - if I was Wayne, I'd go to America". We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'.

Rooney, Everton's leading goalscorer this season, has become increasingly frustrated with a reduced role under Allardyce.

There had been suggestions Rooney had demanded the guarantee of regular football next season, but Allardyce rubbished that idea.

Wayne Rooney has not asked to leave and neither has he had a confrontation with me.

Olson was met at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport by a TMZ/Mega reporter on Friday and when first asked how the deal was going he said: "I don't know what you're talking about".

"I have a contract".

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