The Scotland international is the most established striker in the Championship, producing 116 goals in 303 appearances throughout his spells in English football’s second tier.
Consequentially, the former Leeds United star has found himself at the epicentre of a bidding war between two of the clubs who were relegated from the Premier League last season and are looking to return to the top flight at the first time of asking.
Indeed, Norwich City reportedly tabled a £10million bid last week, with an extra £2million in potential add-ons, but Aston Villa bettered that offer on Monday and their £12million bid was accepted by the Cottagers yesterday.
And McCormack’s transfer to Villa Park has been completed, with the Birmingham outfit announcing his arrival via their official Twitter account. The length of the striker’s contract with the Villains remains unconfirmed.
