Club Owner Has Change Of Heart And Will Sell Newcastle Transfer Target

7 years ago

Maybe a positive on the transfer front today with the news that Leeds owner Massimo Cellino has said that he will sell striker Ross McCormack, but only to a Premier League club.

The new maverick Leeds United owner is clearly not shy of the media spotlight and appears to be taking pleasure in sending out quickly changing, and often contradictory, bulletins especially surrounding his prize asset.

Cellino quoted today by the Express;

“If he gets an offer from a big team then we should give him the chance to go, but the teams who have asked for Ross McCormack are from the Championship.”

This would appear to ‘slightly’ contradict earlier quotes from the Leeds owner, particularly this one only two weeks ago from Cellino;

“Newcastle made an offer for Ross McCormack and I said no, he’s happy to stay here and that made me proud.”

At that time (5 June) we further went on to report;

The 27 year old Leeds striker scored 28 goals last season in the Championship but despite this encouraging profile, Mike Ashley and Newcastle United are keen to rubbish these claims.

With Sky Sports News saying;

“Sky sources described Cellino’s statement as ‘nonsense’ (why would Newcastle be buying anybody now when they’d have to pay them 2 months wages for no return…) and insist that no bid has been lodged with the Elland Road outfit.”
