Rooney joins Derby 2 months before he can be registered

Manchester United great Wayne Rooney has started training with Derby County two months before he can be registered.

The Sun says the ex-England captain was at the club's training ground on Tuesday with his new team-mates.

He does not start his player-coach role at the Championship club until January but is getting ready before he officially starts.

Rooney, 34, finished his two seasons with DC United in America in October with an MLS play-off defeat to Toronto.

At Pride Park he will start the coaching career he has had his eyes on since his time at Manchester United when he became the club's top scorer.
