Middlesbrough have denied making a transfer offer for Fulham striker Ross McCormack, accoring to The Evening Gazette.

There have been reports this week linking Middlesbrough to the former Leeds United striker however the club have denied they made a bid for McCormack.

Fulham have recently been placed under a transfer embargo after breaking Financial Fair Play rules and so are under certain restrictions when it comes to signing players.  This could convince the club to sell £11 million rated McCormack and get the embargo lifted.

However if Fulham do sell their top scorer, it is unlikely he will join Middlesbrough.  It is understood that boss Aitor Karanka is happy with his current squad, that sit top of the table, and is not looking to add to it in the immediate future.

It is believed that Middlesbrough will only delve into the transfer market this month if “a deal was handed on a plate with the right player at the right price.”
