Prolific Fulham FC forward Ross McCormack has signed a new four-year contract with the former Premier League outfit, the club have confirmed.
The 29-year-old former Leeds and Cardiff striker came close to leaving Craven Cottage during the January transfer window, after handing in a transfer request following strong interest from high flying Middlesbrough who are chasing the automatic promotion places.
Fulham have now however done enough to convince the club’s top scorer that his ambitions can be achieved in South West London, despite the club’s unconvincing campaign.
The Scottish International has found the net 18 times in all competitions for Fulham this season, a figure which several clubs in the promotion push pack would love to experience from a lone striker.
McCormack arrived in at Craven cottage back in July 2014, with the ambition to taste Premier League football with the side that suffered relegation in the previous season.
Fulham failed to bounce straight back to the top flight following a mediocre campaign and have unfortunately suffered a similar season during the current campaign with the club stuck in 18th place.
It is unlikely that Fulham can offer McCormack his dreams of playing in the Premier League, unless the club can following Brighton and Hove Albion’s impressive turnaround next season under new boss Slaviša Jokanović, who earned promotion with Watford last season before leaving before the start of the season after failing to agree personal terms.
