Everton striker Wayne Rooney has been informed that he no longer has a future at the club under new manager Marco Silva,  according to the Mirror.

But it’s news that has been welcomed by supporters of the club who are clearly unperturbed to hear that the legendary England striker is set to exit after a report from the BBC claimed that he had agreed a ‘deal in principle’ with MLS side DC United.

Upon the 32-year-old’s return to the club last summer,  it was seen as a huge coup by the Toffees faithful, who couldn’t wait to see the return of the hitman to his boyhood club.

But despite an excellent start to his return to Goodison Park, which was initially on a two-year contract, the striker’s form dipped and a public spat with his then manager Sam Allardyce during the Merseyside derby soured his return.

Rooney scored ten goals in 31 Premier League appearances for the Blues but did not find the back of the net in the league again after his effort against Swansea back in December.

Here is a selection of responses from social media from supporters reacting to the news as it is looking likely the player will be exiting soon:
