Leeds United braced for £4m bid

West Ham are weighing up a £4m offer for Leeds United captain Ross McCormack, according to the Daily Star.

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is stepping up his recruitment drive during the final week of the transfer window, having recently completed the double signing of Italian duo Antonio Nocerino and Marco Borriello.

And now it seems Allardyce has tabled a £4million offer for the Leeds United skipper.

A move for Southampton striker Rickie Lambert was blocked by the clubs new chairman Katharina Leibherr, although the Hammers have since been linked with the Saints newly banned record signing Dani Osvaldo.

Allardyce had previously been left frustrated in the transfer market, as Everton hijacked the clubs move for Monaco striker Lacina Traore, but things seem to be finally coming together.

Scot McCormack, has enjoyed a fantastic season for Leeds.

The 27-year-old is the clubs top goal scorer this season, with 18 strikes to his name.

Allardyce hopes he will become his third signing in quick succession, having completed the signings of Nocerino and Borriello on Saturday.

The Hammers boss has found himself under severe pressure to bring in new players in recent weeks, with the club currently occupying 18th place in the Premier League table.
