Ross McCormack has completed his move to Fulham after the club agreed an £11million fee with Leeds for the Scottish International.

Leeds released a statement last week saying the striker was not for sale, but Fulham made them an offer that was too good to refuse and the striker has signed a four-year deal at Craven Cottage.

McCormack stayed in England while the rest of the Leeds squad travelled to Italy for a pre-season training camp and handed in a transfer request, and now the 27-year-old has got his move.

McCormack, who has commanded the same transfer fee that took Christian Eriksen from Ajax to Tottenham, was the top scorer in the Championship last season with 28 goals and Fulham boss Felix Magath will be hoping he can have a similarly prolific campaign as the Cottagers look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

The forward, who smashed 28 goals last campaign, is expected to hook up with his new team-mates on their pre-season tour to Scotland and could make his debut in Saturday's friendly with Motherwell.

Fulham Football Club statement:
Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Ross McCormack from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee.

The Scotland international, last season's top scorer in the Championship, has penned a four-year deal with the Whites, with the option of a further 12 months, potentially keeping him at the Club until the summer of 2019.

McCormack started his career at Rangers, before spells at Motherwell and Cardiff City prior to his switch to Leeds in 2010.

Capped 11 times by Scotland, the Glasgow-born striker has scored twice for his country.

He becomes Fulham's fifth summer signing following the captures of Tim Hoogland, Adam Taggart, Kay Voser and Shaun Hutchinson.
