Fulham are in negotiations with Ross McCormack to stay at the club - and to forget any notion of a £9 million to either Middlesbrough or Hull.
The Scotland international handed in a transfer request, but after a whirlwind 48 hours, Boro abandoned the Mac bid and first went for Jordan Rhodes at Blackburn and then back for McCormack.
But GetWestLondon understands the club is adamant they are going to keep the Whites leading scorer with 17 goals this term - and are understood to be offering him a new deal.
The Daily Mail reported that McCormack had a clause in his current contract that sees him taking a 'non playing role' when he was 32. The former Leeds striker for whom Whites paid a reported £11 million wants none of that.
Boss Slavisa Jokanovic was adamant he intended to keep both Mac and teenage star Moussa Dembele - at least until the end of the season. The pair have notched 28 of Fulham's 45 goals this season, with the club only four points from Championship safety.
