Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney thinks Danny Welbeck’s move to Arsenal will be good for England, Goal.com reports.

Welbeck completed a £16 million transfer deadline day move to Arsenal after being fazed out of the Red Devils’s first team by the arrivals of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

Although he was sorry to see the 23 year old leave, Rooney, who is also England captain, believes the strikers move to the Emirates will be positive for both the player and the national team.

“Danny is a lively player, an impact player,” Rooney said.

“He is quick, he can score goals and I am sure with him getting the move to Arsenal now, hopefully he can play up front for Arsenal. That will really help him with England.

“He is a Manchester lad and I spoke to him a few times.

“It was a really tough decision for him to move, but for his professional career, he felt he had to.

“Hopefully he can get a few games up front which would benefit him for England.”

With Daniel Sturridge out of England’s game against Switzerland on Monday night, Rooney will almost certainly partner his former Manchester United team mate up front.

Welbeck’s departure from Old Trafford caused some dissatisfaction amongst fans with many of them being unhappy about the Red Devils willingness to sell a player who has come from the youth team. Some supporters fear that the club are losing their identity by buying expensive new additions rather than focusing on producing quality young players.
