Aston Villa have had a would-be Championship record £12m fee accepted by Fulham for former Leeds United man Ross McCormack, according to Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old striker left Elland Road for the London side in 2014 and has notched 38 goals in 89 appearances for Fulham.

The deal for the Scotland international is subject to a medical and agreement of personal terms, but finance should not be an issue for Villa who are due to receive around £65m in parachute payments from the Premier League over the next three seasons.

The Villans are keen on pushing the deal through ahead of their opening match of the season against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, and McCormack could start for the midlands outfit when they take on Huddersfield Town on August 16.

The impressive fee will mean make McCormack the most expensive signing by a Championship club, breaking the record set by Andre Gray when he was purchased by Burnley from Brentford last season - according to

And the deal has got Huddersfield Town fans talking about how much they would take to let prized asset Nahki Wells leave the John Smith's Stadium, with Fulham previously being linked with the former Bradford forward.

RickDangerous said: "Id do business on wells for half the McCormack fee", with Grabvater Berty von Cleck predicting a £10m fee for Bermudian striker.
