But the issues that prompted his desire to leave Manchester United remain unresolved.
Rooney received an enthusiastic reception from the United fans during the 0-0 draw with Chelsea, which it was hoped would sway the 27-year-old towards remaining at Old Trafford.

However, Rooney is understood to remain unmoved but crucially will not be forcing the issue.
With United implacably opposed to selling Rooney, and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho last night demanding some kind of clarification within 48 hours, it appears the whole situation has reached an impasse.
There has been plenty of opportunity for Rooney to rule out a move but so far he has not done that.
What the player did show with his industrious performance last night was that he is prepared to put any personal issues to one side and give his best for United.
It is understood that will continue and the England star will not be following the example of other high-profile names who have either declined to train properly, or simply not played, as their futures have been the subject of intense debate.
Rooney is not thought to have any problem with new manager David Moyes, United as a club, or the supporters.
It was established some time ago that Rooney was deeply affected by Sir Alex Ferguson's stance towards him at the end of last season, in particular the Scot's claim he had asked for a move.
In fact, Rooney had merely asked for clarification of his position within the United squad given his omission from some key games, including the Champions League second leg tie with Real Madrid in March.
And while Ferguson has now stepped down as manager, and at this present moment is not a presence at Old Trafford as he continues his recover from hip surgery, Rooney believes he will eventually exert sufficient influence there to make the former Everton man's situation uncomfortable.
