Wayne Rooney: Back where I belong at Everton and meaning business

Kieran Dowell celebrates a preseason goal

Does the Manchester United legend have enough left in the tank to make a difference for his boyhood club?

This would then presumably grease the wheels of any Ross Barkley transfer, with Everton already climbing down from their £50m asking price to something a tad bit more reasonable, like, say, £30m.

"They've got a good side and they've spent money from letting good players go, perhaps similar to Southampton a couple of years ago".

"We can improve and spend money but everyone can improve and is spending money".

"You have teams like Manchester City and Manchester United who will be stronger than last season, but it is still not the end of the transfer window".

The Dutchman is also unable to call upon long-term injured trio Seamus Coleman (broken leg), Yannick Bolasie (knee) and Ramiro Funes Mori (knee), but will look to give six new squad members their Premier League bows.

"Still now we really have one striker, in my opinion", he said.

Even though Everton have had bids of £40m and £45m rejected by Swansea for Sigurdsson, Koeman thinks they are "close" to hammering out a deal while Swansea apparently want a swift resolution at this point as well.

"They are notoriously slow starters though, and I don't see that changing".

Wayne Rooney returning to Everton is massive news for the club and the reception he'll receive should have Goodison shaking.

A sense of excitement in July when seven players were recruited for in excess of £100 million has been compromised by the sale of Romelu Lukaku.

As players, we all know we will need to play well to keep our place in the team. "We brought some players in but we would like to bring some more in".

Mark Hughes has also revealed Saido Berahino is in great shape and could start.

Everton kick off their 2017-18 Premier League campaign with a visit from Stoke City on Saturday by lunchtime, but they won't be able to call upon the services of midfielder James McCarthy. Let's hope we get an agreement as soon as possible.
