DC United plan to unveil new signing Wayne Rooney today

DC United are set to unveil new signing Wayne Rooney inside the next 24 hours.

The Daily Mail says Rooney was weighing up whether to remain at Goodison Park following the arrival of Marco Silva as manager, but he's now decided to move abroad.

The 32-year-old, who spent the weekend at Disneyland Paris with wife Coleen and children Kai, Kit and Klay, has been granted a work permit and a visa.

According to a US source, Rooney will make his MLS debut against the Vancouver Whitecaps on July 14 - the day before the World Cup final - when DC United open the doors to their new 20,000-seat Audi Field stadium for the first time.

Despite Rooney having a year left on his current deal, Everton will not receive a fee for the ex-Manchester United man.

They will, however, free up his £150,000-a-week wages for new signings this summer.
