The 43-year-old, who has succeeded Rafa Benitez, has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract at Goodison Park.

He will seal a return back to the dugout following his sacking at Chelsea last January after 18 months in charge.

Rooney said: “Everton approached my agent and asked me to interview for the job, which I turned down. It was a very difficult decision for me, but that’s where we’re at.

“I believe I will be a Premier League manager and I am 100 per cent ready for that now. If that comes with Everton in the future, that would be absolutely great.”

Attention now turns to who Everton can bring in before the winter transfer window slams shut on Monday night.

The Merseyside outfit desperately need to bolster their squad as they are currently embroiled in a relegation fight as they sit 16th in the Premier League.
