Fulham's Ross McCormack dejected at full time

Fulham striker Ross McCormack has told The Scottish Sun that he wants to play in the Premier League.

The former Leeds United star has been on the books of Fulham since 2014 and has a contract with the London outfit until June 2019.

“I want to be playing in the Premiership,” McCormack told The Scottish Sun. “I never, ever think to myself I should be playing in the Premiership because there are so many good players playing there.

“You’re a little bit envious because they’re playing against the best players in the world and I’m a tier below them.

“It’s been something in my mind as the years have gone by. I will be 30 in August so time’s running out. I don’t know if I’ll ever get that opportunity but it’s something that I’d love to do.”

Bad news for Championship trio?

McCormack’s desire to play in the Premier League will come as bad news to three Championship clubs.

Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa were all relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign, and the trio have been linked with the Fulham striker.

According to a recent report in The Daily Mail, the relegated trio are interested in signing McCormack in the summer transfer window.

However, the Scotland international’s desire to play in the Premier League suggests that the Magpies, the Canaries and the Villans will find it hard to secure his services this summer.
