Leeds are today being linked with ex-skipper Ross McCormack. According to reports Leeds would be looking to loan the player from Aston Villa after he returned from Melbourne City but whether or not this is remotely true remains to be seen.

Breaking the player down and what he would bring to the club means this deal would be anything but straight=forward for the fans to make their mind up. McCormack has turned into a spoilt player who doesn’t put the effort in if he isn’t happy, a player on huge wages at this level who often thinks about only himself. On the flip side McCormack is a very good footballer and if fit, which is an issue in itself he is a deadly striker at this level. He scored goals in Australia which is what you would expect and Aston Villa won’t want to have him around the club, Steve Bruce has made that very clear.

Since leaving Leeds four years ago for a fee of around £11 million he spent two successful seasons (personally) at Fulham before moving on to Aston Villa for the same sort of money, but on huge wages. He scored a few in his first season but fell out of favour with Steve Bruce after he said he couldn’t get to training because the gate on his house couldn’t open. These are the sort of stories we are now used to hearing about McCormack now so you juts can’t see him fitting into the Leeds United set-up at the moment. Many would disagree with that though and happily have him back.

Born in Gibraltar, raised in Scotland from a very young age. Been a huge fan of Leeds United since I could walk and talk, thanks to my Dad, the English half of me. After a few years in Australia I moved to Leeds, the trips from Scotland down to the city a few times a season didn't cut it. Love the city. Love the people, and the 12 hour round trip to Elland Road is about a 20 minute round trip. Love writing about the club, the more I write the more I feel comfortable doing it. As long as it's enjoyable I'll continue to do so, keep looking to step it up and progress as well. Leeds United is more than just a football team for me, as is it with so many others.
