Wayne Rooney has said he is “ecstatic” after sealing his increasingly-expected return to Everton.
Rooney, 31, told the club’s official website that he was aiming to win trophies after sealing his move from Old Trafford.
He said: “That would be the pinnacle. I really feel now the club is moving in the right direction, bringing the right calibre of players in. I want to be part of it and hopefully part of a successful Everton team.
“It’s a great feeling to be back. I’m excited, I cannot wait to meet the lads, get on the training pitch and then get on the pitch to play. I’m ecstatic — I just cannot wait to get back playing.
“The first game back will be an emotional day for me and I’m looking forward to it. I’m not just coming back because it’s the team I support, the team I grew up playing for – I’m coming back because I feel the club can be successful.”
He became the world’s most-expensive teenager when he left Merseyside for Old Trafford for £25.6million.
