Ross McCormack is leaving Dean Smith’s Aston Villa this summer.

Stan Collymore has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the departure of Ross McCormack from Aston Villa.

Villa, who will play in the Premier League next season after winning promotion from the Championship via the playoffs, have announced on their official website that McCormack will leave the Villans after signing a variation agreement.

McCormack joined Villa from Fulham in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £16 million, and the former Rangers and Leeds United striker has left the Villans a year early.

Much was expected of the Scotland international midfielder when he arrived at Villa Park, but things have not worked according to plan for the former Motherwell and Cardiff City man, but he was not exactly great.

During his time at Villa, the Scottish striker had loan spells at Nottingham Forest, Melbourne City, Central Coast Mariners and Motherwell.

Former Villa striker Collymore has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to McCormack’s exit from the Villans.
