Cardiff target McCormack content at Leeds

Ross McCormack insists he is happy at Leeds United despite being the subject of a bid from Cardiff City.

Leeds turned down a £4million bid for the Scotland striker on deadline day after manager Brian McDermott had been sacked.

Since Friday, McDermott has been reinstated and McCormack has reiterated his desire to remain at Elland Road which he had also done on the final day of the winter transfer window.

"To be honest, (a move away) wasn't that close at all. Cardiff made a bid for me and the club turned it down," he said.

"There were a few more bids made for me, but the club said I wasn't for sale at any price. You have got to respect the decision, get your head down and get on with it."

He added: "I think I showed where my commitment lies on deadline day when I found out the manager got sacked.

"I could have handed in a transfer request and forced through a move to Cardiff but I didn't do that, because I'm happy to be at Leeds United.

"I love being at the club but that's the industry we're in. Managers change but the football club stays.

"It's no secret that the players love playing for Brian McDermott but at the same time I love being a professional footballer for Leeds United. It's a massive club, I'm enjoying every minute and I know in myself that I'm improving.

"I know there's more to come from me and I'm enjoying every minute of being a Leeds United player."
