Wayne Rooney’s Christmas could be ruined by neighbour’s plans for 200 sheep

Derby manager Wayne Rooney could have his Christmas ruined thanks to a local farm's plan to build a shed that can house up to 200 sheep.

The Manchester United legend may be in for some sleepless nights thanks to some new noisy neighbours.

According to The Sun, a local farm has asked for permission for a shed housing sheep near the footballer’s £20million mansion, in Cheshire, 'to store sheep throughout the winter months'.

The news comes after a farm was given the green light to build an outhouse that can store 1,000 genetically modified sheep next to the Derby manager's £20million property.

Rooney is already facing sleepless nights thanks to Derby.

The Rams were slapped with a 12-point deduction, plunging them into the relegation zone, after entering administration in September.

Derby are six points adrift of second-bottom of Peterborough, but without the deduction, the Rams would be 14th.

However, after the news that the administrators revealed Derby have a 95 per cent of survival, the Rams are challenging the points deduction.

Derby's administrator, Andrew Hosking, said: "My view is that there is going to be a 95 per cent probability this will be resolved and resolved certainly in the coming months."

It's not all bad news for Derby on the pitch, though, as Rooney's side have registered wins against Reading and Stoke City in recent weeks.

Hull City are currently Rooney's target in the table, and the Tigers are precariously hovering just above the relegation zone.
