Ross McCormack’s transfer to Fulham broke two British footballing records today, reports The Yorkshire Evening Post.
McCormack signed for Fulham in an £11 million deal, which will see the Scot stay at Craven Cottage until potentially the summer of 2019.
The transfer also see’s McCormack break two footballing records in one day, with the striker now the most expensive Scotland international to move clubs.
McCormack is also now the holder of the record for the highest fee paid between two clubs outside the Barclays Premier League.
The 27 year olds signing is a real statement of intent from Fulham, who will be hoping to get back to the Premier League at the first attempt, following their relegation down to the Championship in May, with McCormack scoring 28 League goals for Leeds last season.
A move had been on the cards for several weeks now, with the striker unhappy at the Brian McDermott sacking, which had led to him not participating in the pre-season training camp to Italy, and publically disagree with new owner Massimo Cellino’s plans for the club.
But few people suggested a move to a fellow Championship side, however Fulham have gone about their business well after beating both West Ham United and Newcastle to the signing.
