Wayne Rooney will not have to pay his former management company £4.3million after a judge ruled yesterday a deal he signed aged 17 was "unenforceable".

Proactive Sports Management claimed it was owed commission payments by the Manchester United and England star.

But the Court of Appeal upheld a previous ruling that the image rights representation agreement Rooney had signed was a restraint of trade. The company was appealing against a ruling at Manchester Mercantile Court last year.

Rooney said in a statement: "Justice has been done. I never wanted to go to court in the first place."
