Aston Villa release Ross McCormack

Aston Villa have released Ross McCormack after a horror three years at the club.

Villa paid Fulham £12m for the Scotsman's signature in 2016.

He went on to make 24 appearances in four seasons, which included loan spells at four different clubs.

McCormack still had 12 months remaining on his contract and was in line for a pay increase after Villa's promotion to the Premier League.

However, the two parties have reached a mutual agreement to terminate the contract.

Villa confirmed McCormack's departure with a statement on Monday, which read: "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."
