WAYNE Rooney will be within strik­ing dis­tance of a tip­ple when he moves into his new home – close to a posh wine mer­chant and six pubs.

The foot­baller, who is due in court to­mor­row charged with drink-driv­ing, has promised wife Coleen he will curb his nights out.

Rooney was ar­rested last month af­ter be­ing caught driv­ing Laura Simp­son’s VW Bee­tle whilst al­legedly over the limit.

Coleen, 31, was on hol­i­day in Mal­lorca with chil­dren Kai, seven, Klay, four, and Kit, one, when the in­ci­dent took place.

She has since been spot­ted with­out her di­a­mond-en­crusted £250,000 wed­ding band and £200,000 en­gage­ment ring. De­spite
