Ross McCormack: Has no intention of leaving Leeds

McCormack's future was the subject of mounting speculation last week with Blackpool reported to be ready to make a £1million bid for the Scot.

But following Leeds' 5-0 friendly win at Farsley, the 26-year-old told reporters: "We've signed a couple of players and I think everyone knows that a few players are going to have to go out to balance the squad and probably balance the books as well.

"At the minute there's a lot of speculation about me, but I don't want to go.

"The manager knows that, my agent knows that so it's all pretty clear. If anything, maybe something could happen with my contract."

Meanwhile, manager Brian McDermott is hoping to complete his fourth summer signing.

He said: "There's one person in particular I'm working on and have been for such a long time. I hope to get some kind of outcome on that.

"Every one of the players I've tried to sign have been important to me and this is another one.

"I'm always optimistic and there's another club involved, but if we can do the deal then we'll do it."

McDermott, who has brought in Matt Smith, Luke Murphy and Noel Hunt this summer, has recently been linked with a move for Peterborough defender/midfielder Tommy Rowe.

Posh director of football Barry Fry confirmed last month that Leeds had enquired about the left-sided 24-year-old.

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.
