Leeds United are in the mood to complete a double transfer swoop in the January window.
McCormack is a highly rated striker at Villa, and he would cost Leeds at least £4.5 million to obtain. He is currently on loan at Melbourne City, with his spell set to expire in the next week.
Leeds are hoping they can tie up both moves before the window closes, with manager Thomas Christiansen desperate to give his side a boost as they look to secure a play-off position.
McCormack is in good form, scoring 14 in 16 games in Australia.
