Middlesbrough have made an improved offer for Fulham striker Ross McCormack, Sky sources understand.

Fulham turned down £6m for McCormack last week but Aitor Karanka has now tabled a second bid, believed to be of £8m plus Spanish striker Kike, for the Scotland international.

With speculation growing over the future of Ross McCormack, we look back at all 15 of his Championship goals from this season so far.

Boro boss Karanka is a long-term admirer of McCormack, who has scored 17 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this season.

Fulham, who appointed Slavisa Jokanovic as their head coach last month, are under a transfer embargo and reluctant to sell McCormack.

Jokanovic said earlier this month: "I am not thinking about selling my key players like McCormack or Moussa Dembele. I don't plan for it and that's it."

McCormack, who joined the Londoners from Leeds for £12m in 2014, has also been linked with other Championship clubs.
