Interesting, Despite McCormack's tweet, Nice Guy Brian insists the Scot is going nowhere. Two bids have been rejected and, according to the bald headed management maestro, "Ross is staying here. He wants to stay and we want to keep him."
So that's that then. Isn't it?
Perhaps. But why isn't McCormack allowed to say he wants to stay at Leeds himself? And what will it say, after such a categorical denial from McDermott, if the Scottish international does now leave?
My money is still on McCormack departing as the Board put pressure on McDermott to reduce the wage bill. As the changes for the Chesterfield game proved, Leeds have an unnecessarily large squad, and as the struggle to win the game proved, quite a few of them aren't worthy of the wages that Warnock negotiated for them as he mopped up any old lags on offer.
Now McCormack doesn't fall into that category, but with Warnock out of work, who is going to take his carthorses off Leeds' hands? And if you need to raise cash, you sell assets that somebody is willing to buy.
Keeping in mind GFH's pledge to "extract value from existing assets", perhaps the Board are simply holding out for a higher price.
