McCormack to leave Villa after club reach agreement to release striker


Ross McCormack has struck an agreement with Aston Villa that sees him leave the Premier League-bound club as a free agent. McCormack has reached a settlement that will cut his ill-fated stay at Villa Park short by one season. The 32-year-old Scotland striker has not played for Villa since September 2017 and made only 20 league appearances following his £12million transfer from Fulham, scoring three goals. His move to the Midlands turned sour when he fell out with former manager Steve Bruce and then failed to convince during a succession of loan moves. “Aston Villa can confirm Ross McCormack is to leave the club after signing a variation agreement. The club would like to wish Ross well for the future,” a statement read. It has been reported that, under the terms of his contract, McCormack stood to receive a wage increase following Villa’s promotion via the Championship play-offs despite his lack of appearances.
