Rooney not going anywhere - Moyes

David Moyes has insisted that he will not allow Wayne Rooney to leave Manchester United.

Rooney's future at Old Trafford had been the subject of some doubt because of an alleged transfer request he put in at the end of last season - although the player privately has denied making such a request.

"I have had opportunities to speak [to him], I've had a chance to speak to Wayne. The fact of the matter is that Wayne's not for sale," he said.

"He's a Manchester United player, he will remain a Manchester United player. I've been fortunate, I've known Wayne since he was 16 [when Moyes managed him at Everton].

"It is a little bit of déja vu, it's a similar sort of feeling. I've had several meetings with Wayne, he's training brilliantly well, he's come back in good shape and I really look forward to working with him."
