Sunderland AFC plotting an ambitious swoop for Ross McCormack


Sunderland are looking to bolster their attacking lineup with the acquisition of Ross McCormack, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

Ross McCormack was a £12million signing for Aston Villa last summer but he never even came close  to justifying such a huge fee and following a fallout with manager Steve Bruce, it is widely expected that the Scottish international will be leaving Villa Park.

It does look like McCormack has made up with Bruce during the close season but Villa could well sell the 30-year-old if the right offer comes along and the Daily Mail state that Sunderland are interested in signing the striker this summer.

Sunderland are currently in need of new strikers following the exits of Jermain Defoe and Fabio Borini, and manager Simon Grayson is said to have identified McCormack as the ideal player to bolster his attacking lineup – having previously worked with the attacker at Leeds United.
