Confirmed: Aston Villa mega-money signing will be sold if his head is not right
By Amir Mir
Aston Villa chief executive Keith Wyness has confirmed that Aston Villa flop Ross McCormack will be sold if his head is not right this summer.
Wyness explained that Villa only want to keep the big-money signing if he’s in the “right emotional state” when he returns to the Midlands.
Sky Sports News reporter Rob Dorsett posted the comments by the club’s senior figure on his personal Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon.
Former Everton CEO Wyness also stated that Villa manager Steve Bruce will make the final decision on McCormack’s future at the club.

McCormack moved to Villa Park for a fee of £12million when Bruce’s predecessor, Roberto Di Matteo, signed the Scotsman from Fulham.
However, his career in the Midlands never got going as he struggled for form and consistency throughout his time at the club.
McCormack managed to find the back of net on only three occasions despite having a healthy goalscoring record in the second tier of English football.
He was allowed to move out on loan during the January transfer window after being publicly criticised by Bruce for his off-field actions.
Bruce deemed the senior player unfit when he missed a number of training sessions after claimed that his gates were not working.
