As exclusively revealed by skysports.com earlier this week, Leeds had agreed an undisclosed fee with Cardiff for McCormack.

The 24-year-old Scotland international will provide a much-needed attacking boost for Whites boss Simon Grayson.

With Jermaine Beckford leaving for Everton and summer signing Billy Paynter injured in the early part of the season, Grayson has been somewhat light up front.

Grayson is delighted to have acquired McCormack, who has ample Championship experience, on a three-year deal.


"Ross is a player of good quality," he told the club's official website.

"He's proved in the Championship he can score goals and hopefully he will continue to do that with us."

McCormack scored 33 goals in 88 appearances for Cardiff, including two from his three appearances as a substitute this season.

He could make his debut against Watford on Saturday where Leeds look to follow up a solid 3-1 win over Millwall.
