Wayne Rooney has announced that he will retire from international football after the 2018 World Cup and we've asked for your thoughts. Tweet #bbcsportsday, text 81111 or head to the Match of the Day Facebook page.

Dictionary of Football: Actually a bit surprised about Rooney's decision. At 32 (in 2018) he's not past his best at all. Could have been a modern day great.

Steve Reddish: A fitting way to end a brilliant int'l career. Will retire with record goals and caps. A true England legend.

Rick Aspinall: The insistence on finding a place in the England team for Rooney is holding us back. He should quit now if he cares.

Tony Baker: Wayne Rooney contributes nothing to England and should go now....he's got no quality left, not a leader ONLY has experience.

'No release clause for Hart'


Simon Stone

BBC Sport

I am hearing there will be no release clause in Joe Hart’s loan deal with Torino from Manchester City.

It means even if Pep Guardiola suffers a long-term injury to Claudio Bravo or Willy Caballero, he won’t be able to get Hart back.

Not that Guardiola is likely to be too bothered given he already has England Under-21 keeper Angus Gunn on his books.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri could complete a deal to join Sevilla before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

Nasri had been a target of Turkish club Besiktas but that deal will not go through.

Mangala’s former club Porto, who sold the defender to City for £32m two years ago, are one of the clubs keen on him, although the 25-year-old does have other options.
