Soccer - Sky Bet Championship - Barnsley v Leeds United - Oakwell Stadium

Fair warning, you may want to find a sturdy leather belt to bite down on – Fulham have agreed a deal (and we use the term “deal” in the loosest possible sense) with Leeds United to sign forward Ross McCormack for…wait for it…£11million – that’s eleven, million, pounds, sterling.

Sky Sports News are reporting that the two clubs have agreed a deal (we imagine Leeds didn’t take much persuading) and that McCormack is a whisker away from signing a four-year-deal with the Cottagers.

We know he was the Championship top-scorer last season and all, but £11million? That makes him the eighth most expensive British striker ever!

The world’s gone mushy!

UPDATE: Fulham have officially announced the deal has gone through and that the start of the Apocalypse is officially upon us!

    First Lallana for roughly the same price as Fabregas or Kroos, now this. Ridiculous

    Just to clarify, The deal is cleary not £11mil up front and has only been released as such to calm the Leeds fans will no doubt be gutted at losing a player who was involved in 61% of their goals last term.

    It is more likely to be 6/7 up front with a further 4/5 more depending on promotion. At the end of the day if Fulham are promoted then it is worth while.

    Shouldn’t believe everything you read….

      @Chris: Fulham also paid £12m for Mitroglou, so £11m for McCormack suddenly seems incredible value for money.

    While releasing Hangelaand and not replacing him. What a waste of money. Good luck Fulham enjoy the Championship–you’ll be staying awhile.
