West Ham Step Up Ross McCormack Bid

West Ham are poised to make an improved £5million offer for Leeds United striker Ross McCormack.Leeds rejected a £3.5m offer from Upton Park on Friday.Scotland international McCormack is the Championship's leading scorer this season with 17 goals, one more than Jordan Rhodes of Blackburn. The 27-year-old was also made Leeds captain just last week.Leeds chairman Salah Nouruddin said on Twitter last week: 'I'd like to reassure all lufc fans that we're working hard for the club and can confirm we've rejected an offer from West Ham for Ross'.West Ham signed another striker on Saturday, taking Marco Borriello on loan from Roma for the rest of the season, and they have until Friday’s 11pm transfer deadline to make a better offer for McCormack.

  1. Yes,it sounds like Nouruddin is just holding out for more money.Sadly letting Ross go at all shows everyone Leeds Utd have no positive aspirations of promotion to the premiership....Same old,same old in my sad opinion.We've been let down once again......
