Gary Gardner has welcomed Ross McCormack to Aston Villa on social media site Twitter.
McCormack completed a move to Villa yesterday from Fulham, and the striker has penned a four-year deal with the Midlands club.
The transfer is the most expensive ever completed by two Championship clubs, and McCormack is expected to have a key role to play.
The 29-year-old’s arrival certainly seems to have pleased Gardner, who reacted on Twitter quickly after the move went through.
Channel Five’s Football League expert Adam Virgo was also of the opinion that McCormack would be a good signing for Villa.
McCormack has finished as one of the Championship’s top scorers for three seasons running now, and Virgo feels he could form part of a lethal partnership at Villa Park.
McCormack could now make his eagerly anticipated Villa debut when his new side take on Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday at Hillsborough.
