Aston Villa’s loaned out striker Ross McCormack will not be returning to loan club Motherwell once his loan spell ends at the end of the season, manager Stephen Robinson has confirmed.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has confirmed that loaned in striker and Aston Villa flop Ross McCormack will not return to Fir Park once his loan deal expires at the end of the season.

McCormack joined Motherwell on loan for the rest of the season in the January transfer window, but he has failed to make an impact on his return to the club. He has made only four appearances for the club – only one of those being a start, and he was substituted at half-time in that game. He is yet to reopen his account with the club, playing only 43 minutes in three appearances in the league.

Now, speaking to the Daily Record, Stephen Robinson stated that he will not be with the club next season, giving a short answer of:

“No. He won’t be back.”

McCormack had spent the first season on loan in Australia with Central Coast Mariners, but his spell there was cut short by a knee injury and he returned to Villa. He scored one goal and provided one assist in his time with the club.

The former Leeds United striker’s time at Villa Park has not gone to plan after joining for £12 million in the summer of 2016. In 24 appearances for the club, he has found the net only three times, picking up one assist along the way as well.
