​DONE DEAL: McCormack leaves Villa for Melbourne City loan

Championship Aston Villa forward Ross McCormack has joined A-League club Melbourne City on loan.

The 31 year old spent the second half of last season on loan at Nottingham Forest after boss Steve Bruce dropped him from the squad, saying he had been missing training.

"We believe he can provide an avenue and a strong attacking option for us," said Melbourne City boss Warren Joyce. "I'm sure the fans will be excited by Ross' potential and we hope to get him right and available as soon as possible."
