Transfer news: Leeds captain Ross McCormack hands in a transfer request
Scotland international has been left out of pre-season tour to Italy
Ross McCormack has handed in a transfer request and is could leave Leeds United soon.
The club captain has not travelled to Italy for United’s two-week training camp and is being chased by Fulham, who were relegated from the Premier League.
The Cottagers had a £5m bid for the Scottish international turned down last month, but McCormack’s request will likely see a move pushed through.
The 27-year-old, who has also been linked with West Ham and Newcastle, signed a four-year deal at Elland Road last autumn but has apparently grown disillusioned at the Yorkshire club.
McCormack held face-to-face talks with owner Massimo Cellino last week, but they did not ease his concerns.
If they were to sell, Leeds would want around £10m for the player. McCormack scored 28 goals for United in the Championship last season.
