Fulham have confirmed they have accepted a bid from Aston Villa for star striker Ross McCormack.

The 29-year-old, who moved to Craven Cottage two summers ago, has been the subject of speculation throughout the summer.

The Whites have been playing hard ball but now the Villans have had a bid, believed to be more than the reported £11million fee Fulham paid Leeds in 2014, accepted.

Norwich have also been interested in bringing one of the leading Championship strikers to Carrow Road.

In his first season at Craven Cottage, McCormack scored 19 goals in 51 appearances for club and country.

Last season was an even better one for the Scot; scoring 23 in the same amount of games.

Provided personal terms are agreed, it leaves Fulham with Sone Aluko, Floyd Ayite, Matt Smith and Cauley Woodrow as striking options after Moussa Dembele joined Celtic earlier this summer.
