Wayne Rooney, who has been linked with a move to MLS side DC United, is Everton's leading scorer with 11 but has not found the net since mid-December.

Sam Allardyce, meanwhile, has said that Rooney has not asked to leave but would not stand in his way if he wished to do so. The former England manager, however, insisted no player could be guaranteed minutes on the pitch regardless of who is in charge.

Many within the club feel Rooney is well placed to help any new boss IF there is a change in the summer.

Rooney is unlikely to be guaranteed regular football next season and is keen to make the move once the current campaign concludes on Sunday.

The striker was visibly annoyed at being substituted just after halftime in successive games against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Rooney's angry response was littered with expletives that were picked up on television. "I can't be tricked into saying something different". "We are two adults, and we talk".

Wayne Rooney has dominated the headlines in the past 48 hours, with speculation suggesting that he is set to quit the Premier League. What next (for Wayne Rooney)? "He's stocky, well made".

However, his season back at Goodison Park has shown that time is catching up with the forward, with the 32-year-old less able to influence games than in the past.

No announcement on Rooney's future will be made until July 10, when the MLS transfer window opens, but it would be no surprise if he chose to follow a trail favoured by ageing pros.

He will join the likes of David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Andre Pirlo and recently Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the coveted names list of people who joined the MLS in the twilight of their career. Allardyce said. "If any players wants to go he can".
