Ross McCormack has completed his move to Fulham after the club agreed an £11million fee with Leeds for the Scottish International.

Leeds were reluctant to lose their 27 year-old talisman, who scored 28 goals in the Championship last season, and released a belligerent statement last week reacting to Fulham’s interest saying the striker was not for sale. McCormack remained in England whilst the rest of his team-mates travelled to Italy for a training camp and eventually handed in a transfer request as he sought to bring his time at Elland Road to an end.

After lengthy negotiations between the clubs, Fulham finally matched Leeds’ valuation for the former Rangers, Motherwell and Cardiff City forward, who has a prolific goalscoring record in England’s second tier. McCormack has agreed a four-year contract at Craven Cottage and could make his debut against his former employers at Fir Park on Saturday. He is expected to join up with the rest of the Fulham squad on their current pre-season tour of Scotland imminently.
