Leeds Transfer News: McCormack Staying Put

It's been a busy day in Leeds after the sacking of Brian McDermott, but there's finally good news for the fans as Ross McCormack will be staying at the Yorkshire club. The club captain was subject to a lot of speculation late on after a hectic day but tweeted ahead of the game tomorrow and issued a rallying cry for the fans. The mini saga began this morning when Cardiff City had a £4million bid rejected by Leeds, with McCormack then stating he was happy at the club and would be going nowhere. Then the story was flipped on its head as McDermott was sacked from his managerial position after just ten months at the club and on the back of a run of 8 defeats, a decision that upset the striker. Ross McCormack then joined SkySports News on the phone to discuss the latest developments with Bryan Swanson, where he stated he was gutted by the decision and put clubs on high alert. Sky Sports News then reported that six clubs had made enquiries and it looked increasingly unlikely that the player would be at Leeds when the deadline arrived. However, against all the odds he will be staying put and will feature against Huddersfield tomorrow. The news will be music to the ears of Leeds fans who will be relieved to keep hold of their prized asset- for the time being at least.
