Hull's Abel Hernandez celebrates
Villa swooped to make their biggest signing of the summer transfer window by landing Fulham striker McCormack on Thursday, with Sky Sports reporting that Villa have paid up to £14m for the Scotland international.

The 29-year-old hit 23 goals for Fulham last season, and will provide a major boost to the Villa attack – but it seems that manager Roberto Di Matteo isn't quite done just yet.
The Telegraph report that Villa are still keen on a deal for Hull City striker Abel Hernandez, despite already having snapped up McCormack.

Now, just days after midfielder Mohamed Diame chose to drop back down into the Championship with Newcastle United, Villa are hoping to tempt Hernandez into a similar move – but it's believed that they face a tough task convincing him into the move.

Having scored just four goals in his last Premier League campaign, Hernandez may want to prove himself in the top flight this time around, but the chaos at Hull – who have made no senior summer signings and have no manager – could at least turn his head.
That would be great news for Villa, and completing a move for Hernandez would give Di Matteo a remarkable attack that scored 45 goals last season, and give fans hope of an immediate return to the Premier League.
