Manchester United’s former England soccer captain Wayne Rooney has rejoined boyhood favourites Everton from their Premier League rivals, the Merseyside club said on Sunday.

The 31-year-old, who has moved to Goodison Park for an undisclosed fee, spoke of his excitement at returning to a club where he began his career after coming through the youth ranks.

Rooney joined United from Everton for £27m on the back of stunning displays at Euro 2004 and went on to win five Premier League titles, four League Cups and the 2015-16 FA Cup on his way to a personal tally of 253 goals.
