Ross McCormack insists he has not handed in an official transfer request at Cardiff but he does have concerns over his position at the club.

The striker`s future has been up in the air since the close of last season, although the Scotland international appeared to end any further speculation by penning a new four-year deal earlier this month.

However, Hull have recently emerged as potential suitors for the forward and chairman Peter Ridsdale revealed on Thursday that "Ross McCormack telephoned me to indicate that if another club came in for him, he would wish to leave".

But the 22-year has moved to clear up the matter. Asked if he has submitted a transfer request, he told BBC Sport Wales: "No."

But he did admit he needs to be playing first-team football this term, whether that be for Cardiff or elsewhere. He added: "I had a chat with the chairman. It doesn't look as if I'm going to be playing - if it continues that way then I would look to obviously get out. Scotland have got a World Cup campaign coming up and it's imperative that I'm playing and if I'm not playing then I would obviously ask to leave."

McCormack received a mixed reception from Cardiff supporters as the club recorded a goalless pre-season draw at Swindon on Saturday.
