Rumour Mill-Burnley linked with McCormack.

Rumour Mill-Burnley linked with McCormack.

It has been reported on Skysports.com that striker, Ross McCormack could be leaving Cardiff City. The Bluebirds are understood to be willing to let the Scotland international depart following their signing of Craig Bellamy from Manchester City.

Burnley are one of a number of clubs keeping a close eye on developments along with Championship rivals, Derby, Ipswich, Leeds and Hull City. It would appear though that a move to both the KC Stadium and Portman Road are no longer an option after talks fell through.

McCormack joined Cardiff for £125,000 in the summer of 2008.

The Bluebirds rejected a bid in the region of £3.5million from Hull last summer.

Since that time McCormack has struggled with injury and when playing in the team often found himself playing a wider role.

McCormack's agent, Willie McKay, has confirmed the 24-year-old could be leaving the Cardiff City Stadium either on loan or on a permanent basis.

Would be a good loan signing at first and if we get promoted and he gets a few goals then it could be made permanent.
