Scotland international McCormack has been the subject of three bids from Middlesbrough during the summer amid uncertainty over his long-term future.

However, McCormack was never looking to leave Elland Road and has offered his gratitude after securing a new deal with the Championship club.

"I'm delighted to sign a new contract with the club," McCormack told the club's official website.

"I've said all along that this club is where I want to be and where I want to play my football. My family are settled here, I love the place, and I'm looking forward to the future now.

"I'd like to thank the manager and the owners for showing faith in me, and I'd like to say a big thank-you to the fans because their support really is something special, and they are what this club is all about."

Leeds boss McDermott is happy to have kept McCormack and expects a positive reception at Saturday's home game against Queens Park Rangers.

McDermott said: "I am delighted that we have managed to come to an agreement with Ross regarding his long-term future at Leeds United Football Club. I'm sure each and every Leeds fan will share my views and Ross will get a fabulous reception tomorrow.

"I would like to very much thank the owners for their support in this. They have turned down three substantial offers for him and have ensured we retain his services in what will be the peak years of his footballing life."

Whites chairman Salah Nooruddin added: "It's great news that we've been able to reach an agreement with Ross regarding his longer-term future.

"We received a number of sizeable offers for the player, but we are delighted to have agreed a new contract that will see Ross remain at Leeds United.

"We are looking to build a future for the football club, and we see Ross very much as part of that future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
