Ross McCormack Signs with Melbourne City FC – James Grant brokered the deal between Aston Villa and Melbourne City
Following 14 years playing in the UK for clubs including Rangers, Cardiff City, Leeds United and most recently Aston Villa, it has been announced today that McCormack has joined the Australian side as an injury replacement player for striker Bruno Fornaroli.
Head Coach Warren Joyce had this to say of the signing: “Losing Bruno to injury was difficult as he is an important player given his stature and ability within our team. But we were proactive in immediately seeking out a replacement and having seen Ross’ performances, we believe he can provide an avenue and a strong attacking option for us. I’m sure the fans will be excited by Ross’ potential and we hope to get him right and available as soon as possible.”
With McCormack adding, “I’m here to do a job for the team, support my teammates, work hard for the manager and represent the Club in the right manner. Hopefully I can show the fans what I can offer the team and I’m very excited about being able to represent this city and its fans at a great Club.”
