Moyes reveals how Man Utd ace Rooney almost pulled on Everton shirt last week

Everton boss David Moyes has revealed he tried to 'sign' Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney last week for Jamie Carragher's Liverpool testimonial.

Moyes contacted England to see if the ex-Toffee striker fancied a brief cameo against Liverpool at Anfield last Saturday.

Moyes revealed: "It was interesting Wayne was keen to play for Everton.

"If it had been possible he would have played but he wasn't able to as he was on international duty."
