Striker Ross McCormack became Roberto Di Matteo’s fourth summer signing – linking up with the claret and blues in August 2016.

Widely regarded as one of the top forwards in the second tier, the Scot arrived from Fulham in a £12m deal.

He scored 23 goals for the Cottagers last season and leaves having bagged 42 in his two-year spell.

McCormack started his career with Scottish Premier League club Rangers in 2003, spending time on loan at League One side Doncaster Rovers in January 2006. 

At the end of the season he was released by Rangers and joined Motherwell.

In 2008 the striker moved south to Championship side Cardiff City – where he netted 25 goals in 74 appearances in a two-year spell.  

A move to Leeds United followed where McCormack was appointed captain.

After a tough start - and a first season blighted by injury - the striker began to firmly establish himself at Elland Road.

In 2011/12, his second campaign, McCormack, scored 19 goals in all competitions for the Elland Road outfit. 

An ankle injury, sustained in a meeting with former club Cardiff City, ruled him out until November 2012 in the following season yet he returned with a bang. 

He scored the winning goal for Leeds in a 2–1 FA Cup victory against Tottenham in January 2013 – the strike saw him scoop the club’s ‘Goal of the Season’ accolade.

McCormack scored his fifth league goal of the season on the last day of the season away to Watford. 

It ended a disappointing campaign for McCormack in terms of goal scoring.

He had taken a different role in the previous season and spent the majority of the term playing out of his usual strike position, often playing out wide or in midfield. 

He certainly made up for it during the following season though, scoring 29 goals and was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Year. 

This form sparked a move to Fulham in July 2014. 

Internationally, McCormack has been capped 13 times for Scotland since making his debut in 2008. 

He played ten times for Scotland U21s from 2006–08, scoring three goals and he was also capped once for the Scotland B team.
