De Laet, who joined Melbourne City on loan from Villa in the Championship in England in September, will face McCormack this weekend.
McCormack moved to Central Coast Mariners, also on loan from Villa and also in September.
Belgian defender De Laet, 29, has spoken highly of 32-year-old Scotland international striker McCormack.
De Laet told The Birmingham Mail: ”Everyone knows the qualities of Ross. We can't give him many chances because he is a good finisher.”
Aston Villa situation
Villa are not missing De Laet and McCormack at all, as the Villans seem to be doing well without the Belgian defender and the Scottish defender.
The Villans returned to winning ways in the Championship at the weekend, as they got the better of Swansea City 1-0 at Villa Park.
Villa will take on Norwich City away from home at Carrow Road in the Championship this evening.
Dean Smith’s Villa are 13th in the Championship table at the moment with 18 points from 13 matches, just three points behind sixth-placed Norwich.
