Arguably the biggest transfer this window so far has been Ross McCormack.

McCormack has joined Fulham for £11 million, the Daily Mail confirms.

The deal pens a 4-year-contract at Craven Cottage for the Scotsman who was keen to leave Leeds all summer.

The Leeds striker has enjoyed fantastic scoring form for the West Yorkshire club. During the last season he scored 29 goals in 47 appearances for the club. That was at an average at just over one goal every other game. He quickly earned plaudits from many fans for his credible performances and moments of brilliance.

Earlier this week, he had handed in a transfer request to the club and had not traveled to Italy with the rest of the squad for Leeds’ pre-season camp. It had been known that many clubs have been monitoring the player and last month and Sky Sports reported that Newcastle had bidded for the Scotsman which Chairman Massimo Cellino declined.

Back in January, West Ham and Cardiff reportedly bid for the striker however Leeds declined the bids but with patience running out, McCormack declared that he wanted to leave the club this week when handing in the transfer request BBC Sport reported.

Earlier, papers reported that Fulham were keen for an original base fee of roughly £7 million, but this morning the £11 million deal was confirmed.
