It seems that with each pre season at Leeds United there is change aplenty and the truth of the matter is much more stranger. It appears today as if just as Leeds get a new Coach in the shape of Gianluca Festa, they will also lose one of their star assets to either the Scottish leagues or the Premier League.
Sources at Leeds state that Ross McCormack is set to leave the club now that manager Brian McDermott has lost his job. McCormack, 27, who scored more goals than any other in the Championship’s last year is now set to go to either Celtic or West Ham.
It will cost any team who wants his services £8m or more to move him away from Elland Road, but there are teams out there who would be willing to pay that fee. So only time will tell.
What is evident is that the teams in the Championship have little or no chance in keeping their star players who are needed to get them into the Premier League in Britain which in itself, is a problem with the structure of the league.
As well as Celtic and West Ham, Leicester and Malaga have expressed an interest too, which is deeply disconcerting for the fans at Leeds United. If it is true that it is a case of In Massimo We Trust, then they will be wondering just what is coming next.
