Ex-Rangers star watched by Moyes' spies
Everton have been linked with Leeds United striker Ross McCormack after David Moyes sent David Weir to watch him yesterday.
McCormack scored a penalty and set up another in Leeds' 4-0 Capital One Cup win over Shrewsbury at Elland Road, with the ex-Cardiff striker generally at the heart of everything the home side created. Weir was spotted making notes - setting toungues wagging after Moyes himself watched McCormack play for Leeds against Preston last weekend. There has been interest from Wigan, West Ham, Huddersfield, Blackburn, Wolves and Brighton in the 25-year-old Scotsman, who has just one year remaining on his current deal at Elland Road and scored 18 goals in the Championship last season. But Leeds boss Neil Warnock is still hopeful that striker Ross McCormack will sign a new deal at the club. McCormack turned down the initial offer made to him by Leeds earlier in the summer and the club and the players representatives are now back around the table renegotiating a new deal. Warnock told Yorkshire Radio: "We are still not sure about Ross, but we are hopeful he will sign a new contract. We are once again in talks with him."
