Ross McCormack edging closer to Aston Villa exit

Aston Villa could finally see one man leave the club this summer after Steve Bruce made it clear he had no future at Villa Park.

According to a report by the Daily Mail, Ross McCormack is thought to be closing in on a move back to Australia.

It is understood the Scotland international could be about to join up with Usain Bolt at Central Coast Mariners, after an impressive spell with Melbourne City earlier in the year.

The attacker, who was not deemed to have been fully fit during his time in the A-League, netted 14 goals in 16 appearances, which has drawn attention from the New South Wales outfit.

The 32-year-old is deemed surplus to requirements at Villa Park under Bruce, with the pair having fallen out and their relationship does not appear to be repairable.

The Verdict:

McCormack will be looking to end his nightmare at the Championship outfit and a move to Australia could be what the doctor ordered for him to get a fresh restart.

The £4.5million-rated attacker, as per Transfermarkt, has struggled with life in the Midlands and has spent time at Nottingham Forest and Melbourne City during his time with Villa.

However, a permanent move to the land of Oz looks to be on the cards for the Scotland international and could be a move that will get the best out of him once again.
