Ross McCormack makes Fulham move

McCormack hit 29 goals for Leeds last season.

Fulham have completed the signing of Leeds United captain Ross McCormack for what could be the biggest transfer fee a Championship club has ever paid.

The Scotland international cost a reported 11 million pounds as Fulham spent heavily in their bid to make an immediate return to the top flight after last season's relegation.

McCormack was the Championship's top scorer with 29 goals last season and was named the division's second best player -- behind Burnley's Danny Ings -- at the Football League Awards.

The 28-year-old former Cardiff striker, who reportedly submitted a transfer request at Elland Road, has signed a four-year deal at Craven Cottage with the option of a fifth season.

A statement on Fulham's official website read: "Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Ross McCormack from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee."

Craven Cottage boss Felix Magath said: "I'm very happy with the signing of Ross McCormack who will be an important player for our squad.

"Ross was not only the top scorer in the Championship last season but also had a lot of assists, so has a proven pedigree at this level which can only be an asset to us."

Fulham have lost several senior players this summer with Sascha Riether joining Freiburg and Steve Sidwell moving to Stoke, while Damien Duff, John Arne Riise, Giorgios Karagounis, Mahamadou Diarra, Brede Hangeland and John Heitinga were released.

Leeds sacked manager Brian McDermott, with whom McCormack had a close relationship, and replaced him with former non-league coach Dave Hockaday.
