Derby-bound Wayne Rooney admits move back to England too great to turn down

Wayne Rooney said he had plenty of offers as he sought a return to England but the opportunity to work as a player-coach under Derby manager Phillip Cocu was "too great to turn down".

The Rams on Tuesday completed a surprise move for the former England captain, who will join Derby in January 2020 on an initial 18-month contract that allows him to continue his playing career but also build his credentials as a future manager.

Rooney, who admitted his family's situation was key to the decision to cut short his American adventure, will see out the MLS season with DC United before heading to Pride Park.
