It was suggested this week that Villa may be looking to offload the forward immediately.
A report in the Mirror claimed that Villa could look to offload the 30-year-old next month as new manager Steve Bruce looks to re-balance his squad.
McCormack joined the relegated club at the start of August and was initially a regular in the Villa side, playing as a spearhead in a multi-pronged attack.
However, he has started just two of Bruce's seven games in charge since taking over in mid-October, serving mostly as a deputy to leading frontman Jonathan Kodjia.
The Scot has found the net only twice since his arrival in Birmingham, and there are whispers that the Villa staff are underwhelmed with the impact he has made.
However, he undoubtedly has class at Championship level, and to sell him so soon would undoubtedly be a risk, particularly as Villa will have a host of attacking stars absent after the new year for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Reacting on Twitter to the report, Villa fans' opinions were split, though many thought it would be unwise to move McCormack on at this stage.
#AVFC Two goals in 14 games is a very poor return on our investment of £12m in McCormack. Now surplus to requirements at Villa? Perhaps so.— bc (@golf_avfc) November 30, 2016
Apparently Ross McCormack could be leaving @AVFCOfficial already hasn't gelled well but still a good game changer— James Montgomery (@JamesMonty1996) November 30, 2016
Don't see why Ross McCormack should be sold. No point selling him if we haven't got Kodjia & Ayew for January— nathan (@Nath1874) November 29, 2016
McCormack is struggling to fit into our system. Get midfielders in the Jan window & we can play 2 up top,we will see the best of him. #avfc— Ja'Crispy Oakley (@Gazoaks) November 29, 2016
Ross McCormack is going nowhere, he'll bang in the goals when Jonny Kodjia's at afcon— lew (@lew_clamp) November 29, 2016
With Kodjia, Adomah and Ayew going off to AFCON don't think it would be wise to get rid of McCormack. More than adequate back up #avfc— TB (@tom9022) November 29, 2016
