Leeds boss Neil Warnock admits he does not expect striker Ross McCormack to accept the club's terms on a new contract.

Ross McCormack: Looks set for Leeds exit

The 25-year-old's current deal runs to next summer, but his decision to refuse an extension could see the Scotland international leave during the close season.

McCormack was signed from Cardiff on a three-year deal in 2009 and after a quiet first season at Elland Road he hit the net 19 times during the last campaign.

"It's unlikely he'll sign," Warnock said. "We've offered Ross an increase but his representatives made it clear that they're looking for a more significant increase after the season he's had.

"We've agreed to play it by ear and see where things go from here but he's going into his last year and it might be that people come in for him now."
