She moved out to Washington D.C. to support her footballer husband Wayne Rooney last year.
Coleen Rooney, 33, may soon be returning home with her family, however, following reports that her husband, also 33, will stop playing abroad when his lucrative contract with D.C United expires next year.
A source told The Sun: ‘This is seen as a major win for Coleen. She’s put her foot down and told Wayne she wants their children to grow up in familiar surroundings in the UK and get them settled in local schools.

‘And since she’s got her wish, Coleen’s the happiest she’s been for years. It signals a new exciting era for the family.’
Coleen is reportedly eager to see her sons Kai, nine, Klay, six, Kit, three, and 17-month-old Cass, enrolled into British schools by January 2021 as Wayne’s contract draws to an end.
The move will see the couple spend time apart for a short period of time as Wayne completes his coaching qualifications in the States.
Wayne signed a 2.5-year, $13 million deal with D.C. United last year, the biggest in the team’s history.

The claims come in the same week the mum-of-four took took to Instagram to share a snap of her and Wayne basking in the sunshine with a glass of champagne in their hands.
Coleen shared a snap of the two in high spirits as they enjoyed the UK heatwave during their summer break together.
The brunette looked sensational as she donned a swimming costume with denim shorts while Wayne kept cool in a black T-shirt and blue shorts.
The cosy picture came just days after former escort Helen Wood, who had a threesome with Wayne in 2009 ahead of the South Africa World Cup, made a full apology to his wife in an interview with the Sunday People.
During her apology Helen said: ‘I used to have a really pig-headed attitude towards the situation. I used to say “If she wants to stick with him that’s her own fault”.

‘Now I’m a bit older, I’m like, she’s just a mum who wants to be with her family, leave the girl alone. We all know a woman who puts up with a cheat. It’s unfortunate that hers is used as entertainment.’
Earlier this year it was revealed that the former England and Manchester United striker, who was signed to play with United D.C. in June 2018, was arrested for public swearing and intoxication at Dulles International Airport in Virginia last December.
Following the arrest a spokesman for Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said: ‘He was booked into the Loudoun County Adult Detention Centre on December 16, 2018, on a charge of public intoxication stemming from an arrest by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police (MWAA).’
Wayne’s football club also released a statement in which they said: ‘We are aware of news reports indicating that Wayne Rooney was arrested in December.
‘We understand the media’s interest in this matter but believe this is a private matter for Wayne that D.C. United will handle internally. We have no further comment.’
