Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has joined Everton over the weekend on a free transfer. The announcement was made on Everton's Twitter handle with photos.


According to BBC Sport, Rooney arrived at Everton's Finch Park training ground on Saturday to have a medical, according to BBC Merseyside Sport.

Rooney, 31, has now returned to Goodison - 13 years after he left for United - despite interest from other clubs. United will waive a fee and may also fund part of Rooney's £13m wages, it was learnt.

The deal is not connected to United's ongoing pursuit of Everton forward Romelu Lukaku. Rooney signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract during the 2013-14 campaign, which included the option of a further season, but the Old Trafford club has no intention of triggering that clause.

The future of the former England captain, who started 15 Premier League games last season, was a subject of speculation for several months.

Asked in May whether he wanted to stay at Old Trafford, he said: "Of course. I've been at this club for 13 years, but I want to play football."

Rooney began his career at Goodison Park before joining United for £27m in August 2004. Meanwhile, United have appointed former Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia as their new Under-23 manager.

Sbragia, who left the Scottish FA last month, spent three years in charge of the reserves at United from 2002.
