He's just cashing out, he hasn't got the legs for the PL anymore anyway.

I assume this was already agreed last year, he just wanted a quick homecoming. Sa y what you want about Rooney, he did always love his boyhood club and he'll no doubt be in the stands at Everton when he's done....well in a box anyway.

One of those guys, that never looked like a footballer until you put a ball at his feet and then magic happened. Euro 2004 was electric because of him. I'm convinced we'd have won it with him.

He was sh*te at Everton if we are honest about it. In his final years he tried to reinvent himself as a deep player. It was disastrous for England in the Euros and he didnt really appear any better at Everton. Still decent on the odd long shot, set piece or a penalty but in the build up he simply didnt have the legs as stated above. Completely ponderous and not bringing anything to the team that an 19 year old reserve midfielder couldnt. I thought Everton signing him was heart over head and ultimately I was correct.

Some heart over head the other part is all these corporate style big clubs do corporate wage off load by letting go high wage earning players on free by subsidizing part of their wages in last one or two years of contract.
Anyway, all the best to him time for him to enjoy some life.
