Soccer – Villa bring in McCormack

Aston Villa have completed the signing of striker Ross McCormack from Championship rivals Fulham in a £12million deal. McCormack managed 21 Championship goals last season for Fulham and has now joined Roberto di Matteo's Villa, who are seeking an immediate return to the Premier League. "He is a player whose goalscoring record has been excellent everywhere he has been and we feel he can be an important addition," Villa manager Di Matteo told the club website. Villa are 9/1 to win the Championship outright with bet365 and 13/5 to win their opening fixture at Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.
