Ross McCormack: Won't be subject of a second bid by West Ham

The Hammers had a reported £3.2million bid for McCormack turned down last week and it was expected Allardyce would return with an increased offer despite Leeds' insistence that they did not want to sell the Scotland international.

"The bid for Ross was rejected on Friday and I've have spoken to Sam Allardyce since and he has said that they won't be coming back in for him," McDermott told the club's official website.

"I'm confident that he will be here after the window closes on Friday. Ross has never asked to leave. He is my captain and he is a talisman for our team.

"He scores goals and he makes them as well. He has been a good leader for the team and for me and I'm confident he will remain here.

"He has been important since April, since I turned up at the club. I'm sure that he will get better and better and will, and we are going to have him for his prime years."

McCormack, 27, who joined Leeds for an undisclosed fee from Cardiff in August 2010, currently leads the Sky Bet Championship goalchart with 17.

Meanwhile, McDermott said there had been an enquiry about one of his players during the transfer window.

"There's been interest in one of the players, not Ross, and we'll see where that goes," he added.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
