Wayne Rooney's future out of my hands, Sam Allardyce says

Everton remain interested in bringing Marco Silva to Goodison Park as Allardyce's replacement, but despite being now unemployed, appointing him as their manager still faces some challenges. "Confident? I can't quite say confident after all the rumours I'm reading in the paper", he said.

After taking over from Ronald Koeman in November when the club were struggling, Big Sam guided the club to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League table.

Both approaches were unsuccessful, but given that Silva is now unemployed, he'll no doubt jump at the chance to return to the Premier League, should Everton come knocking at his door.

Allardyce said: "Yes. There are rumours about Wayne going elsewhere overseas - in China and America - but at the moment he is an Everton player and an Everton fan".

Former Watford boss Marco Silva and and Shakhtar Donetsk boss Paulo Fonseca are the bookies favourites to replace Allardyce, wither veteran Dutch tactician Louis van Gaal also listed as a contender after his spell at Manchester United ended in May 2016.

Allardyce also said Everton expect confirmation about Wayne Rooney's future tomorrow, with the former England captain linked with DC United.

Allardyce, who has a year remaining on his 18-month contract, is set to discover his fate in the next few days after he revealed on Sky Sports News that he has a meeting scheduled with Farhad Moshiri, and in truth all signs point to an exit before the week it out.

"They have always been a club that get behind their players and their manager."

"That was pleasing but I do not think we can be happy with how the season has gone as a whole and where we finished".

'We have to build something stronger as a team for next season.
