Leeds United manager Brian McDermott has issued a hands-off warning to clubs interested in signing striker Ross McCormack.
The Scotland international is reportedly a transfer target of several clubs, with Middlesbrough and Blackpool said to have tabled bids for the player.
But the 26-year-old – who is contracted at Elland Road until 2015 – will be going nowhere according to McDermott.
McDermott said after United’s 2-1 League Cup win over Chesterfield on Wednesday: “Ross wants to stay. I want him to stay. He’s staying.
“There’s been a couple of offers for him knocked back.
“He loves it at Leeds. He loves the fans. He’s not for sale.”
McCormack scored in Leeds’ 2-1 Championship win over Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
The former Rangers and Cardiff striker has been at Leeds since 2010, and has scored 26 goals in 74 league starts for the Elland Road outfit.
