Several clubs chasing Ross McCormack
The talents of Cardiff City striker Ross McCormack have reportedly been attracting the attentions of several clubs. Ipswich have been confirmed to have held talks over the player, with Jon Stead possibly moving to Cardiff as a makeweight in any deal.
The player’s agent Willie McKay told Sky Sports that: "I have spoken to Ipswich chief executive Simon Clegg about Ross and we are now waiting for Ipswich to make a formal offer to Cardiff. Once that happens and an offer is accepted we will discuss personal terms with Ipswich. However, there are a four or five other clubs also chasing Ross and we will see what offers come in for him."
Celtic, the team McCormack supported as a boy, are said to be one of the parties keen on recruiting the player as Neil Lennon continues his overhaul of the squad at the Scottish Premier League club.
Impressive display
In a strong display Wednesday night, McCormack netted two goals in extra-time in an eventual 4-1 Carling Cup first-round victory over Burton Albion which will have impressed any watching scouts. When asked about McCormack’s future after the game, Cardiff boss Dave Jones said that: "I'll talk about players when things are rubber-stamped and not before. While they’re here they are Cardiff City players."
Scotland international McCormack started his career with SPL giants Rangers and scored four goals in 14 appearances across three seasons. He then made his way to Motherwell after being released by new Rangers manager Paul Le Guen in 2006. He impressed with the Steelmen as he chipped in with 14 goals in his two seasons there before making a £120,000 switch to Cardiff in June 2008.
His first season at Cardiff saw him grab an eye-catching 21 goals in 38 league games. However, injury meant that he could not continue that good form last season and, when he was fit to play, often found himself playing out wide rather than in his preferred centre forward position.
