Rooney understands Welbeck leaving Man Utd for Arsenal
Welbeck was sold to Arsenal on deadline day.
"Obviously time will tell (if he prospers at Arsenal)," Rooney told BBC Radio Five Live of his England team-mate. "It is obviously a good move for Danny.
"It was difficult because he wasn't playing all of the time at Manchester United, so he had to make a decision and he has obviously chosen to leave.
"We will miss him in our dressing room. He is a great friend of mine, he was great around the dressing room, so we will miss him, but I wish him all the best."
