Ross McCormack is set to make a major U-turn – by signing a new Fulham contract, Football Insider sources understand.
The club’s prize asset has indicated he will commit to improved terms just days after the west Londoners rejected his transfer request.
Fulham have turned down two bids from Middlesbrough for the forward in January, the second of which amounted to £10million.
The Championship strugglers have refused to allow their 17-goal top scorer to leave after being slapped with a transfer embargo that means they can only sign players on loan.
McCormack signed a new Fulham contract only last summer that runs until the summer of 2019 but that will be replaced by a more lucrative agreement.
The west Londoners are 19th in the table and just four points above the drop zone, with a young team reliant for goals from McCormack and 11-goal Moussa Dembele.
As revealed by Football Insider on Saturday, Dembele has agreed to join Tottenham. The latest Fulham transfer news is that the 19-year-old striker has passed a medical with the club ahead of a move for an initial fee of £1.7million.
