Ross McCormack isn’t coming back to Cardiff, apart from playing against us next season it seems, but he does look like he’ll be earning us a cash windfall in the coming days.

We’d seen reports say that we wanted to bring the striker back from Leeds United, who we sold him to back in 2010, but this hasn’t happened. He will be leaving our Championship rivals this summer after telling them he wanted to move with another of our rivals Fulham agreeing a fee to sign him.

A monster £11m will be paid and that will earn us a cool 15% from a sell on clause included in the deal when the Scottish international moved to Elland Road.

If my maths is right that’s money to the tune of £1.65m isn’t it? We got goals from him when he got him on a free then sold him to Leeds for an undisclosed amount and now we’ll get more money for him when they sell him, all shrewd business.

Fulham are paying a lot of money for the 27 year old but I’d expect them to get what they’ve paid for with his goals likely to make them a firm favourite to get straight back into the Premier League, which is our aim too of course!
