Wayne Rooney has rejoined Everton after leaving Manchester United on a free transfer, the Merseyside club confirmed on Sunday.
The 31-year-old has completed an emotional return to Goodison Park, 13 years after leaving for United in a £26.5million deal.
Everton confirmed the two-year deal – which is worth around £150,000-a-week – with a short teaser video entitled ‘welcome home Wayne’.
Rooney spoke of his excitement at the move and said: ‘(Winning trophies with Everton) would be the pinnacle. I really feel now the club is moving in the right direction, bringing the right calibre of players in. I want to be part of it and hopefully part of a successful Everton team.’
‘It’s a great feeling to be back. I’m excited, I cannot wait to meet the lads, get on the training pitch and then get on the pitch to play. I’m ecstatic – I just cannot wait to get back playing.
