'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC McCormack - I always wanted to stay

Leeds United striker Ross McCormack says he always wanted to stay at Leeds after signing a new contract with the club.

McCormack put pen to paper on a new three-year deal after looking like he would be heading out of Elland Road earlier this summer.

After completing the new deal, keeping him at Elland Road until the summer of 2015, McCormack says it is what he wanted to do all along. Speaking on the official website, McCormack said, 'This was always what I wanted to do."

McCormack will be hoping to beat the 19 goals he scored for Leeds last season, which made him the clubs leading goalscorer.

The striker has made the perfect start to the season, netting for both Leeds and Scotland in the first week of the season.

McCormack netted from the penalty spot in last weekend`s win for Leeds over Shrewsbury Town in the League Cup.

Scotland boss Craig Levein had overlooked McCormack throughout last season despite his good club form but he earned a late call up for the national squad last weekend and he took his opportunity with a superb individual goal within ten minutes of coming off the bench.

With McCormack celebrating his 26th birthday on Saturday, he will hope to end the perfect week with a goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers on the opening day of the championship season. "It's perfect timing with the first game of the season being on Saturday and I was always hopeful we could get things sorted in time.

'It's my birthday as well on Saturday, hopefully we can get three points and it's all perfect. We've got a good squad of players here. There may be a couple more come in but we've got a good team and we're looking to do well,"
added McCormack.

Leeds kick off against Wolves at lunchtime in front of the live Sky TV cameras on Saturday.
