In what is becoming a sense of de ja vu, Ross McCormack is reported to be nearing a loan deal away from Villa Park.
At 32 and with two years remaining on an astronomical contract, McCormack’s time at Villa appears to be on a long road to nowhere.
Further, it’s telling that no domestic side is either prepared to match McCormack’s wages nor risk his temperament.
McCormack instead is expected to link up with A-League’s bottom club Central Coast Mariners for the remainder of the campaign.
The former Scottish international departs having scored just 3 goals in 24 appearances for Villa.
