Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney has arrived England as he prepares to finalize a sensational move to Derby, Sky Sports reports.

The former England captain arrived at Heathrow on Tuesday morning, making his way up to the Midlands afterwards.

Rooney is set to complete a deal to become a player-coach at the Championship club.

The 33-year-old has two years left on his contract at DC United after spending just over a year in Major League Soccer (MLS).

He has spoken publicly of his desire to pursue a career in management when he retires as a player, and he sees Derby as an ideal opportunity to learn the ropes while also prolonging his playing career.

Rooney was a big admirer of Louis van Gaal’s coaching methods when he was at Manchester United, and he has been convinced that Derby’s current boss, Philip Cocu, has a similar approach to his countryman.
