WAYNE ROONEY is staying at Man United and don't say we didn't tell you.

The England striker's decision to pen a new five-year deal was so surprising when you consider he didn't have too many options away from Old Trafford.

Bookies have offered varied Rooney specials over the past week and well done to Coral for refunding bets on the which club the hitman would join next market.

Coral has trimmed Rooney to 14-1 (from 20-1) to be the top Premier League scorer this season while Manchester United are 9-2 second favourites to regain the title from Chelsea, with Manchester City, who had been favourites to sign Rooney, next at 11-2.

Bet365 also cut Man United from 11-2 into 9-2 for the title, 8-11 into 4-6 to finish above Man City and have seen money for Alex Ferguson's side to beat Stoke on Sunday (8-11 into 4-6) even though Rooney will miss out with an ankle injury.

Paddy Power are offering odds of just 2-5 that Rooney kisses the badge when he next scores for his club.

As a celebration of choice for many modern footballers a badge kiss surely won’t be far away while Paddy Power go 9-4 he celebrates by going into the crowd and 9-1 he runs over to Fergie.

United play archrivals City in less than three weeks and Paddy Power offer 5-2 Rooney scores and kisses the badge in that match.

It's getting silly now but you can have 33-1 with Paddy Power that Rooney calls his second child Alex and 100-1 his manager is the godfather.

But will we now see a return to form from the player? Rooney is 16-1 to be the EPL's top scorer this season but he has too much ground to make up.
