Ross McCormack: Striker is happy at Leeds United and is waiting to be offered a new contract
Ross McCormack says his first choice is to stay at Leeds United and the striker is waiting to be offered a new contract by the club.
The Scotland international is in the final year of his current deal at Elland Road and Leeds do not want to lose McCormack for nothing next summer.
He has been linked with a string of Championship rivals, with Bristol City, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town all rumoured to be keen on the 25-year-old.
However, McCormack is happy where he is and is prepared to discuss a new deal after being the subject of several failed offers this summer.
"Everyone knows there has been offers for me which have come into the club, and the club have turned them down," McCormack told the club's official website. "I'm just waiting on an offer of a new contract and we'll take it from there.
"I've said from day one, I've got a house here, I've got an eight-month old baby, my missus is happy here, and my choice would be to stay at Leeds so hopefully the offer is one that I think is acceptable."
Neil Warnock has previously said he will only let McCormack go, if he signs a replacement, but the Leeds boss remains eager to hang on to the former Cardiff City forward.
"Ross knows I want to keep him," said Warnock. "I've had a chat with him. His representative will be talking to the club over the next few days.
"We've had a couple of enquiries for him, but I don't want to sell him unless something happens that we can't turn down."
