The biggest stories from the last 24 hours about Fulham and Queens Park Rangers.


Ross McCormack was this morning finally confirmed as a Fulham player after signing from Leeds United for an £11 million fee.

The 27-year-old was the Championship's top scorer last season, with 28 goals, and bolsters a front line that already contains Kostas Mitroglou, Adam Taggart, Hugo Rodallega and more.

A statement on the club's website read: "Fulham Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of Ross McCormack from Leeds United for an undisclosed fee."

And manager Felix Magath said: "I'm very happy with the signing of Ross McCormack who will be an important player for our squad. Ross was not only the top scorer in the Championship last season but also made a lot of assists, so has a proven pedigree at this level which can only be an asset to us."

Leeds had reportedly rejected a £10m bid from the Cottagers yesterday, though the extra million has seemingly proved enough to seal the deal for the Scot.


Interestingly, the biggest QPR-related news from the last day has come via Instagram.

Indeed, Rs owner Tony Fernandes posted a picture of Loic Remy on the social networking site, stating that he is one of 'QPR's world-class players.'

The post has led to speculation that the Frenchman, reportedly a transfer target for Tottenham and Arsenal, could yet stay at Loftus Road.

In other news, midfielder Gary O'Neil is 'sweating over his QPR future' after the club stalled on giving him a new deal, say talkSPORT.

The 31-year-old's old deal expired this summer.

Meanwhile, the same site have claimed that Tom Ince was a transfer target for Harry Redknapp, with the Rs having lost out to Hull City, who confirmed the winger's signing yesterday.
