Aston Villa are reportedly considering offloading Ross McCormack in January following a slow start on the goal front.

Aston Villa could reportedly part ways with striker Ross McCormack in the January transfer window.

The Scotsman joined the Midlands outfit from Fulham just four months ago, signing a four-year deal in a transfer that cost Villa £12m.

However, the striker has failed to find consistent form in front of goal as he has netted just twice in 14 appearances this season.

According to The Mirror, Villa are considering offloading the 30-year-old, who scored 21 league goals for Fulham last season.

Villa currently sit 11th in the Championship following an unbeaten seven-match run.
