Report provides update on Ross McCormack's future at Fulham, with Aston Villa and Norwich City interested

Aston Villa

Aston Villa and Norwich City are believed to be interested in signing Fulham's Ross McCormack.

According to a report in the Telegraph, Fulham are braced to lose Ross McCormack this summer - with Aston Villa and Norwich City both considering making an offer.

McCormack only recently signed a new long-term contract with Fulham, but he had a £12 million release clause put into the deal.

It is believed that both Villa and Norwich City are considering paying the fee, as they look to bolster their squads.

Villa’s relegation from the Premier League has been confirmed for some time, while Norwich’s status as a top flight club hangs in the balance.

Norwich must win both of their remaining matches to have any chances of surviving in the Premier League.

Villa are believed to already be considering making a move for a striker, with McCormack one of the names on their wishlist.

Norwich, meanwhile, reportedly want to bring in a proven forward - as they have struggled to find a potent forward this term.

McCormack has netted 23 goals for Fulham this season, and his form has been a major reason why the Cottagers have avoided the drop in the Championship.
