SCOTLAND international striker Ross McCormack is in soccer limbo.

The 31-year-old frontman, who cost ex-boss Roberto Di Matteo £12million when he signed from Fulham in August 2016, has been told he has no future with the Midlands outfit.

McCormack recently returned from a loan spell at Melbourne City in the Australia A-League where he scored 14 goals in 17 appearances.

The former Rangers and Motherwell attacker has been training with the first team, but couldn’t even get a place on the substitutes’ bench in his side’s 2-0 defeat against his former Craven Cottage team in London on Saturday.

He had a spell on loan at Nottingham Forest in February last year and scored on his debut in the 5-1 loss at Norwich City, but dropped out the following month after making himself unavailable because of “personal issues”.

McCormack, who is under contract at Villa until June 2020, has been attracting attention of MLS clubs and could kick-start his career in the Sates.

The attacker, who has also played for Doncaster, Cardiff City and Leeds, has made 13 appearances for Scotland and netted two goals.
