Rooney praise for midfielder

Everton ace Wayne Rooney has hailed the impact of Tom Davies and said he voted for him to be the PFA Young Player of the Year.

Rooney appears to have settled back into Everton life with ease following his return from Manchester United this summer and he is looking forward to a season with his new team-mates and especially Davies.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season and won the young player of the season award at the club and Rooney has revealed he voted for him to win the PFA award and expects him to kick on this season.

"I thought he was brilliant last year," Rooney told the club's website. I actually voted for him for Young Player of the Year. I thought he had a brilliant impact on the team.

"I’ve obviously seen it myself when I was here when I was younger - when the fans see a homegrown player coming through they give you their full support.

"They’ve seen that with Tom last season and I’m sure it will help him now to kick on and keep developing. I’m sure he will do that. I know what feelings he’s going through (to play for Everton). It’s a great feeling."
