Leeds standing firm on McCormack

Leeds United have reiterated their desire to keep hold of star striker Ross McCormack amid ongoing speculation around his future, the Express understands.

His twenty-eight goals in forty-six appearances saw him finish as the top scorer in the Championship last season – form that saw him gain interest from a number of clubs in the top two divisions of English football.

McCormack, who is captain of the Yorkshire club, is thought to have handed in a transfer request at Elland Road leading to Leeds’ chairman Massimo Cellino issuing a statement confirming that the club themselves want to secure the strikers services, and that they are in no need to sell off their best players.

Leeds United finished last season in fifteenth place, and last month announced former Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday as Brian McDermott’s replacement.

They begin the 2014/15 campaign with a trip to Millwall, where they can be backed at 15/8 to take all three points.
