Fulham could sell £11m former Leeds United striker McCormack in January - Report

Fulham are reportedly open to listening to offers for Ross McCormack, only months after signing him from Leeds.

Signed for £11 million in the summer by Fulham, could Ross McCormack be destined for an early exit in January?

The Mail is reporting that the west London side are to at least consider their options regarding the striker.

Their report states: "Premier League clubs have been alerted to the fact Fulham are willing to listen to offers for striker Ross McCormack just six months after signing him from Leeds United for £11million.

"The 28-year-old is content in London but the struggling Championship side are considering means to strengthen their squad elsewhere and a sizeable offer for McCormack would be considered."

McCormack had a disappointing start at Fulham as did the whole side under Felix Magath, and while Kit Symons has steadied the ship, he has scored just four goals this season in the Championship.

Of those goals just two have come from open play - but his seven assists and 41 chances created illustrate his value to the team.

There is no chance of former club Leeds bringing him back, due to a transfer embargo on them announced by the Football League today - and any Premier League side who want him are unlikely to want to go higher than the £11 million Fulham paid for him in the summer.

It's likely just an idea from Fulham to see if any offers come in, to recoup the cash paid out for the striker - and if he ends 2014 in good form, interest may begin to build in his services. In all likelihood however, McCormack will remain a Fu;ham player unless they are prepared to accept a loss.
