Leeds' Ross McCormack

Aston Villa appear to be closing in on the Fulham hitman.

Ian Taylor believes that Ross McCormack would represent a "fantastic signing" for Aston Villa, but the legend suggests it won't be the club's last incoming this summer.

The 29-year-old hitman seems to be on the brink of joining Aston Villa after Fulham accepted a £12 million bid from the Villans on Wednesday.

McCormack has been one of the Championship's best strikers in recent years and having his goals would be just huge for Aston Villa's promotion hopes.

Taylor spent nine years at the Villa and remains at the club in an ambassador capacity, and the Villans legend gave his approval for the McCormack deal - but revealed that the Scottish marksman is likely to be followed into the club by at least one more player.

Aston Villa kick off their Championship season with a trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, and how Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal must be hoping that the McCormack deal is not done in time.

Signing McCormack - who has netted 116 Championship goals in eight years - may be a potential game-changer for Villa in their pursuit of the Premier League.
