Report: Ross McCormack rejects new contract at Fulham

Fulham

Ross McCormack rejects another contract at Fulham, after links with Middlesbrough in the January transfer window.

According to a report in The Sun, Ross McCormack has rejected a new contract offer from Fulham.

Sky Sports had suggested that the Scotland international was close to agreeing new terms at Craven Cottage at the start of the month.

However, talks seem to have broken down between the two parties, plunging McCormack’s future into further doubt.

The 29-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Middlesbrough (Daily Mail) in the January transfer window, and he handed in a transfer request (Daily Mail) to try and force through a move to the Riverside Stadium.

Fulham rejected his attempt to leave, though, and McCormack ended up staying at Craven Cottage - with Boro opting to bring in Jordan Rhodes from Blackburn Rovers instead.

McCormack still has three years left on his deal at Fulham, but he has refused to commit his future to the club for longer, despite being offered new terms.

Fulham could now face a fight to keep hold of the Scotland international when the transfer window re-opens, and The Sun also suggest that Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are resigned to losing his strike partner, Moussa Dembele, at the end of the campaign.
