Could Leeds United end up letting McCormack leave on loan?!

Could Leeds United could lose their star man before Thursday's loan deadline?

Leeds United's club website yesterday revealed the news that Massimo Cellino's bid to takeover the club was rejected by the Football League.

Supporters, along with the larger football community, all expressed their opinions on the matter and the majority seemed to be happy the takeover didn't go through. However, for fans the decision, in the short term, could be very costly.

The decision, along with the return of Connor Wickham and the imminent exit of Lee Peltier, has supporters worried that more bodies could leave Elland Road before Thursday. And in a recent tweet made by respected journalist Alan Nixon, it seems to hint their worst fears may come true.

He indicates that Leeds United may be forced to listen to offers for the league's top goalscorer and supporters of other clubs are already beginning to speculate where the Scottish international could end up. 

The loss of McCormack would be a huge blow to the quality of the Yorkshire side, and not only that, it would be a huge blow for the mentality of remaining players too.

After being appointed captain by Brian McDermott in January, it became apparent the desire and drive the former Cardiff man had for the club.

He has spent the majority of the season dragging Leeds out of sticky situations, and although the club are desperate for the money, I can't see him abandoning ship now. Not unless it was an absolute necessity that he should leave, for himself and the club.
