Manchester united and Everton legend, Wayne Rooney has completed a three-and-a-half-year deal with Major League Soccer club DC United.
He will officially complete his move when the US mid-season transfer window opens on 10 July.
There is no transfer fee but it is understood DC United have agreed a compensation package with the Toffees.
The 32-year-old’s deal is worth £10m, meaning he becomes the highest paid player in DC United’s history.
Rooney will make his debut when the club open their new 20,000-capacity Audi Field Stadium on 14 July.
“Moving to America and MLS fulfils another career ambition for me,” Rooney told the club website.
“I have the hunger to be a success here and will give DC 100% – as I have always done for every team I have ever played for. Now I can’t wait to get on the pitch in a United shirt and join my new teammates to bring success to this club.”
