Wayne Rooney has been one of the star turns in MLS in recent seasons, but the former Manchester United star has now been linked with a shock return to England.

Following a glittering career for club and country, Rooney left England in 2018 to join US-based club DC United. England's all-time leading goalscorer has been one of the stars in the MLS since then, scoring 25 goals in 45 appearances, and recently took part in the annual MLS All-Stars game.

That could be his final contribution for the Black-and-Red, however, as the latest reports from England suggest that the 33-year-old could be in line for a shock return to England.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Rooney has entered preliminary discussions with Derby County over a potential player-coach role with the Championship side.

Phillip Cocu recently took over at the helm of Derby following Frank Lampard's return to Chelsea, and could add Rooney to his playing and coaching roster if discussions progress smoothly. 

It's worth noting, however, that the MLS season draws to a conclusion in October, which means Rooney may only be available to play for Derby in January should he join the club.
