According to the Birmingham Mail, Leeds United have joined the race for Aston Villa bomber Ross McCormack who spent the first part of the season on loan in Melbourne City.
The 31-year-old striker is set to return to England this Friday after his loan spell in Australia came to an end. However, the player has announced his desire to stay with the Blues until the end of the season, and the A-League side share the same feeling.
The Lions have no intention of keeping the former Whites forward, trying to cash-in on him instead.
Thomas Christiansen is seeking a quality striker to enhance his team’s chances in Premier League promotion race. And, it seems that McCormack’s incredible performances in Australia have caught his eye.
Steve Bruce would be more than happy if he collects some money from McCormack’s sale, as he is looking to capture Leicester City forward Leonardo Ulloa before the end of the transfer market.
