In the interview Dougie Freedman confirmed that he rated the Leeds striker, but said it was far fetched to suggest a deal was close.

Speaking to the Croydon Advertiser on the issue of speculation suggesting that a deal was nigh on done for Ross McCormack, Freedman said.

‘Ross is a fantastic player and I do know him quite well, but it might be a little far fetched to suggest anything. You are never close to a deal until a player puts pen to paper, but we are active in trying to do deals. But we have got a bit more integrity in how we do stuff than to discuss it through the papers and we will do our business in the right way.’

Not a flat out reubbishing of the idea that we are close to a £800,000 deal, but maybe just not as far down the line as papers have been suggesting.
