McCormack joined Villa from Fulham in 2016, but has never settled at Villa Park.

The 31-year-old scored 13 times in 15 appearances for Melbourne City in the first half of last season, but was not re-introduced into the first-team fold following his return in January.

It is understood that the striker’s relationship with head coach Steve Bruce is still non-existent following their infamous bust-up 18 months ago.

It had been thought that McCormack would be given some football in pre-season, but he has reportedly been omitted from Villa’s pre-season trip to Portugal.

The Villa fans have been reacting to the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are frustrated with what looks a huge mess.

McCormack showed at Leeds United and Fulham that he can score plenty of goals at Championship level, but he has only managed three league goals since arriving at Villa.
