 Wayne Rooney to Take Controversial Drug To Cure Baldness
After years of "slaphead" jibes from team-mates, England star Wayne Rooney has decided to cure his baldness with the help of a controversial drug.

The 100,000 pound-a-week Man United striker is set to gulp down a tablet of Finasteride plus scalp lotion to block hormones causing his hair to fall out.

In sports, until this year, the drug was banned as it could mask steroids.

Now it's legal and Rooney, 23, has already had a consultation, reports the News of the World.

A pal said: "Wayne's wanted this so long. It won't suddenly give him a head of hair but will stop the rot."

The drug's pioneer, however, has given one word of caution.

US doctor Robert M. Bernstein said: "One in 500 people can suffer breast enlargement from the treatment."
