Everton have confirmed Wayne Rooney has re-joined the club from Manchester United.

The 31-year-old has issued a statement thanking United for the past 13 years and expressing his happiness at returning to his boyhood club.

Rooney left the Toffees for Old Trafford in 2004 and returns after winning 12 major honours, including five Premier League titles and a Champions League.

Everton announced Rooney had signed on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

"It is some time since I said that the only Premier League club I would play for other than Manchester United was Everton, so I am delighted that the move has happened,” he

"Thirteen years ago I went to United with the intention of winning trophies and I have been fortunate to be a part of one of the most successful periods in the club's history.

"I have come back to Everton because I believe Ronald Koeman is building a team that can win something and I look forward to playing my part in making that a reality for the club I have supported since a boy."
