McCormack is being strongly linked with a summer move away from Elland Road, and reports claimed that Newcastle had made a move earlier this week.

Cellino later stated that he had indeed turned down a bid from Newcastle for the in-demand Scotland international.

However, Newcastle have been quick to deny any suggestions that they have made any sort of bid for the Leeds man.

Sky sources have described Cellino's statement as 'nonsense' and insist that no bid has been lodged with the Elland Road outfit.
