DONE DEAL: Ex-Man Utd starlet Morrison reunites with Rooney at DC United

 Former Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison has reunited with Wayne Rooney at DC United.

The former United team-mates worked with each at Derby County last season, and Morrison has followed Rooney to America following his appointment at the MLS club.

D.C. United's president of soccer operations, Dave Kasper, said: "Wayne worked closely with Ravel during his time as manager of Derby County.

"Ravel is an incredible talent and his ability to create and score goals is impressive. He has played at the highest levels during his career and his vision, creativity and ability on the ball will be a huge asset for us.

General manager Lucy Rushton added: "Ravel is a dynamic and exciting player who has experience performing at the elite levels in Europe and Mexico.

"He is a top-class midfielder with excellent technical ability and positional versatility. His game intelligence and all-round attacking ability allow him to fit perfectly in the system and style that Wayne wants to play.

"We look forward to integrating him with the roster and having him contribute on the field as soon as possible."
