Rooney rejoined his boyhood club Everton from Manchester United in July past year.

No announcement on Rooney's future will be made until July 10, when the MLS transfer window opens, but it would be no surprise if he chose to follow a trail favoured by ageing pros.

"For me, Wayne Rooney doesn't move the needle", Lalas said.

"I don't get involved in transfers or negotiations".

It's reported that the MLS club is prepared to offer Everton £12 million to convince them to part ways with their top scorer this season once the league's transfer and trade window opens on July 10.

Only when I speak to him today [Friday] will I find out where the situation lies.

"If the player wants to go - if any player wants to leave - then I'm comfortable with that", Allardyce said.

Official results are expected to be announced by the end of Monday, 48 hours after polling stations around the country closed. Sadr's father, highly respected Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Sadeq al-Sadr, was murdered in 1999 for defying Saddam Hussein .

Rooney's agent Paul Stretford is said to have been in the USA with talks at an advanced stage between the player's representative and the Major League Soccer (MLS) outfit. Wayne is the leading goalscorer but quite a few of those are penalties, so the main aim if you are going to finish higher up in the league is how many goals can your team score. We've not been in any hard situations because we're two adults and we talk'.

He scored the last of his 11 goals for the Merseyside club in December and manager Sam Allardyce has suggested he could not guarantee the player a regular starting spot next season.

Allardyce said: "How as a manager can you guarantee anyone to play?"

Wayne Rooney has played his last game for Everton after saying his goodbyes on Saturday, according to Sky Sources. If they don't play well you can't select them and if they do play well they stay in the team.

"I have a contract - a one-year contract".

"It's a tricky question for me to answer", Allardyce said.
