Ross McCormack insists he is in 'no rush' to leave Fulham after the club stood firm to keep hold of their talismanic striker in the January transfer window.

The Whites were reported to have rejected offers from Middlesbrough last month and the title chasers eventually moved to sign Jordan Rhodes instead.

And McCormack maintained that he is fine with the club's policy, although made it clear that, like any player, he is keen to play at the highest possible level.

He said: “I was fine. Fulham didn't want to sell me. It's as simple as that. I'm still here. I've got three and a half years on my contract. I'm in no rush but, of course, I'd love to play at the highest level.”

McCormack took his tally for the season to 18 goals with his opener in the 3-1 win at QPR on Saturday, which moves him to one goal shy of his return from last season.

While the Scot insists he doesn't have a target, any footballer would be keen to better their achievements from last season.

“I didn't have a target at the start of the season. I scored 19 last year so it's all about getting better,” he added.

“We've been threatening a big win for a couple of weeks but not really getting the results.

“We said we'd take playing worse and getting the result but as it was we played even better and got the result which is fantastic.”

The victory at Loftus Road, with Moussa Dembele and Tom Cairney also scoring, was the first under Slavisa Jokanovic with the last victory coming in December under Stuart Gray as the Serbian watched from the stands.

McCormack explained: “It's been difficult. We've had loads of new managers since Kit left and new ideas.

“He's steadied the ship. The intensity in training is a lot higher. We do a lot more physical work and you could see it today. We've got potential to steamroller teams.”

Fulham travel to Blackburn Rovers on Tuesday in a bid to climb further away from the relegation zone.
