Leeds reject Fulham bid for McCormack

Sky Sports understands that Leeds United have rejected an offer from Championship rivals Fulham for club captain Ross McCormack.

The recently relegated London club had bid around £5m for the Scotland international, though that has been turned down by the Yorkshire side, who are themselves preparing for an eleventh straight season outside of the top flight.

McCormack finished last season as the top scorer in the English second-tier, with twenty-eight goals in forty-six appearances leading him to be named Player of the Year both by his club and their supporters.

The 27 year old has previously played for Rangers and Motherwell in his native Scotland, and had spells with Doncaster Rovers on loan and Cardiff City while internationally he has eleven full caps and two goals for his country.

Fulham are now expected to make an increased offer for the striker, who is valued by Leeds owner Massimo Cellino at around £8m.
