Fulham agree deal for Leeds striker McCormack
Fulham have agreed a deal with Leeds United for the signing of their striker and captain Ross McCormack, who will sign a four-year contract, according to Sky Sports.
The Cottagers, relegated from the Premier League last season, had initially made an opening offer of £5m, which was rejected by the Yorkshire club. However, after lengthy negotiations, the Scot now looks set to move to West London, but for a fee of £11m.
Leeds owner Massimo Cellino was originally adamant that McCormack would not be joining another Championship club, but was reportedly forced into selling the club’s star man on Tuesday morning.
McCormack has been prolific in the Championship since joining Cardiff City in the summer of 2008. He then moved on to Leeds three years later and last season he had his best goals return in English football, scoring 29 league goals last season to earn the division’s Golden Boot.
He now becomes Felix Magath’s fifth summer signing at Fulham, after Shaun Hutchinson, Tim Hoogland, Adam Taggart and Kay Voser.
