Wayne Rooney vowed to stay at Manchester United

Wayne Rooney has dismissed speculation he is leaving Manchester United.

With the transfer window due to close on Friday, reports have suggested Rooney's future lies away from Old Trafford.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has already insisted the England striker, currently out of action with a leg injury sustained in Saturday's defeat of Fulham, remains in his plans.

And Rooney himself said via his Twitter account on Wednesday night: 'Read the nonsense in the papers and heard what people have to say. absolute rubbish #heretostay.'

The England hitman faces up to two months out after gashing his thigh during his appearance as a sub against Fulham.
