Aston Villa outcast Ross McCormack has admitted that he is not prepared to be frozen out at Villa Park and is willing to remain at Australian club Melbourne City beyond his current loan arrangement according to the Express & Star.

The 31-year-old Glasgow born hotshot joined the City Blues in September on a short-term loan deal until the new year with the player out of favour at Villa Park following a fall-out with Villa boss Steve Bruce during the second half of last season.

With McCormack’s loan deal at AAMI Park up for renewal in the coming weeks, it has been reported that the player has no desire to return to parent club Villa and is willing to extend his stay with Melbourne City.

The striker has made five appearances in the Australian A-League to date and McCormack has bagged three goals including a brace in the 2-0 victory at Adelaide United late last month.

The player joined Aston Villa in August 2016 in a reported £12 million deal from Sky Bet Championship rivals Fulham. McCormack has struggled to live up to expectations at Villa Park and has scored just three goals in 24 outings for the club.

The player is under contract at Villa until summer 2020 and it could take a significant transfer bid for his services to end his Villa Park misery for good.
