Fulham striker Ross McCormack is one of the most sought after talents in the Football League, and according to BetVictor it is Aston Villa who lead the way for the striker’s signature.

The Scotland international has been one of the Championship’s top scorers for the past three seasons, and he appears to guarantee goals in the second tier.

McCormack has a clause in his Fulham contract which allows him to move for £15 million, and the trio are all believed to be willing to meet the asking price.

It is Villa who lead the way in the race for the striker’s signature, according to the bookies, though.

Villa are short priced 6/4 favourites to sign McCormack - with Newcastle and Wednesday considered 3/1 shots to land the 29-year-old.

Beyond that Norwich City and Middlesbrough are also listed as potential destinations for McCormack, but they are considered as outsiders at 10/1 and 14/1 respectively.

McCormack scored 23 goals for Fulham last season, and was a major reason why the Cottagers avoided the drop.
