Everton round-up: Rooney going, Bowen wanted and Niasse speaks
Wayne Rooney is off. The England legend, who only rejoined his boyhood club last summer, has reportedly agreed a 2-year-deal with MLS side DC United. Sky Sports report an announcement is due in the next 24 hours.
England’s record goalscorer started his second spell at Goodison Park well but drifted out of the team toward the end of the season.
After not receiving any guarantees over his future at the club from the new management team it appears he has decided a move Stateside is the best option for his career.
Bowen still wanted
Rumours of Everton’s interest in Jarrod Bowen have re-emerged today. As reported by the Hull Daily Mail the Hull City boss Nigel Adkins has made his intention to keep the wide-man at the KCOM Stadium abundantly clear. He also insisted that there has not yet been any offer made for the 21-year-old.
However, with reports of Everton considering a £12 million move for the player, Hull will struggle to keep hold of the young attacker.
Bowen scored 15 goals in the Championship last season in what was an excellent campaign. Marco Silva previously worked with Bowen at Hull.
Niasse fans exit flames
Everton striker Oumar Niasse has told the Turkish press that he loves the country, amid interest from Super Lig giants Galatasaray.
The Senegal attacker has recently been linked with a move to Istanbul. He has previously played for Akhisar Belediyespor and his future at Goodison Park is in doubt.
