Wayne Rooney has remained coy over his chances of playing in midfield more for Manchester United.

The striker was deployed in a deeper role alongside Michael Carrick on Sunday as United edged closer to the Premier League title with a 2-0 win at Stoke City.

When asked if a central position could become more regular for him, Rooney told talkSPORT: "I don't know. You'll have to ask (manager) Sir Alex Ferguson that. It's not for me to say."

Sunday's victory means that United need seven points from their final six games to clinch a 20th championship.
