Leeds United forward Ross McCormack signs new deal

Leeds United forward Ross McCormack has signed a new three-year deal with the Championship club.

McCormack, 26 on Saturday, had one year remaining on his previous contract.

The Scotland international scored 19 goals last season and opened his account for this campaign with a goal against Shrewsbury in the Capital One Cup last Saturday.

"It's perfect timing with the first league game of the season on Saturday," he told the club website. 

"We've got a good squad of players here and there may be a couple more to come in too, so we're looking to do well.

"We had a good pre-season and we're looking to kick on now."

McCormack, who scored for his national side in Wednesday's 3-1 friendly win over Australia, joined the Elland Road club from Cardiff in August 2010.

The former Rangers and Motherwell man has so far notched 20 league goals in 66 games for United.
