DC United to announce signing of Everton striker Rooney today

DC United are set to announce the signing of Everton striker Wayne Rooney today.

Sky Sports reports the 32-year-old will arrive in Washington at around 7pm BST on Thursday and will hold a news conference at the MLS club on Monday.

The former England captain is expected to sign a three-and-a-half year contract with DC United.

Rooney is understood to have secured a visa and work permit and could begin training with his new team-mates by the end of the week.

However, England's record goalscorer cannot officially become a DC United player until their transfer window opens on July 10.
