Premier League clubs seeking to sign Ross McCormack will now have to pay Fulham £15m, according to a GetWestLondon report this afternoon.
The Scottish striker’s recent contract extension includes a release clause that has now risen by £2.5m after the former Leeds forward scored 23 goals in all competitions. McCormack, who joined Fulham for a reported £11m from Leeds United in July 2014, was happy to agree to the alteration of the clause which gives the Londoners a fair reward for his recent exploits at Craven Cottage.
Slavisa Jokanovic isn’t considering selling one of the Championship’s most consistent performers and spoke about his desire to build his revamped side around the 29 year-old. McCormack is currently on international duty with Scotland and could make a second start for his country in week when the Tartan Army take on France in Metz on Saturday.
