The 31-year-old forward is back where it all began, with the Toffees making the England international the latest addition in a summer squad refresh


Wayne Rooney has completed a return to boyhood club Everton after 13 years playing for Manchester United.

The two clubs have been locked in transfer negotiations this week, with Romelu Lukaku set to go the other way for an estimated £75 million.

The England striker, 31, left Goodison Park in 2004 for £25.6m and returns for a reported £10m to help fill the void left by Lukaku’s departure.

Rooney becomes the latest arrival at Goodison Park in an ambitious summer rebuild by Ronald Koeman, with big-money deals for the likes of Jordan Pickford, Micheal Keane, Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez already wrapped up.

On his official Facebook page, he wrote “Excited to be back at Everton Football Club. Can’t wait to meet up with Ronald Koeman and the lads! #EFC.”
