The London club say they have signed the Scottish international on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be around £11million.

He was the top scorer in the Championship last season and will be part of a new strike partnership at Craven Cottage as Fulham look to bounce back from relegation.

Twitter reports that McCormack has been sold

Sports journalist Simon Austin says Leeds United captain Ross McCormack was sold late last night.

Austin has close links with new Whites owner Massimo Cellino.

The Scottish striker has been linked with Fulham but it is thought the London side were reluctant to meet United's £10million asking price.

Cellino has said the club do not need to sell last season's Championship top scorer and that he would do everything he could to keep McCormack at Elland Road.

"We would like to reiterate our desire to keep Ross McCormack at Leeds United. This desire includes keeping all of our best players as we look to build a stronger and successful squad for the 2014/15 Championship season.

"Leeds United may not be the richest club in the Championship, but we do not need to sell our best players in order to run the club successfully."
