Reports on Thursday claimed the former England captain has already agreed a deal with Major League Soccer side DC United.
However it is claimed he has not yet decided whether he will leave Everton as he is waiting for the uncertainty over Allardyce’s position to be resolved.
“My understanding is there seems to have been some negotiation along the line but as for clarity as to whether Wayne is staying or going we’ll see later on,” Allardyce said.
“I don’t get involved in transfers but there seems to be an interest from DC United. Only when I speak to him today I’ll find out where the situation lies.
“I’m comfortable with any player who wants to leave but let’s get this clear, Wayne Rooney hasn’t asked to leave.”
