BREAKING: Wayne Rooney quits Man United, returns to Everton

Manchester United record goalscorer Wayne Rooney has rejoined Everton on a free transfer, 13 years after leaving the Merseyside club.

England international Rooney, 31, played 559 times for the Red Devils, scoring 253 goals. He won five Premier League titles and each of the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup once after joining from the Toffees for £27m in 2004.

His return comes as United look set to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku,with a £75m deal for the Belgium international agreed between the two clubs.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman began talking about Rooney's potential return as far back as October, stating he would be "pleased" to sign England's all-time leading goalscorer.

Those comments intensified speculation over the player's future during a season in which he was often left out of United's starting line-up by manager Jose Mourinho.

He appeared in 25 league games - the fewest he has played in one season - while his total of eight goals in all competitions was the lowest of his career.

Rooney has also made the announcement on his Twitter handle. Se his tweet below:
