Former Leeds striker Ross McCormack is reportedly a target for a host of Championship and League One sides following his release by Aston Villa, and some United supporters have been discussing if the Whites should muscle in on the action.

Wigan Athletic, likewise, are interested in boosting their goal output having scored 51 times in 46 games, while Championship new boys Charlton Athletic have been credited with an interest following their promotion.

The Valley natives could face competition from their former League One opposition Coventry and the recently-relegated Ipswich Town, though, while clubs in Scotland are also thought to be intrigued.

McCormack had been offered a lucrative move to China following his release by Aston Villa earlier in the summer, but it is understood he would prefer to remain in Britain and is ready to reject the advances of the unnamed Far East outfit.

Villa were happy to cut their ties with the Rangers product after an unsuccessful period together in Birmingham, where the former Scotland international struck the back of the net three times in 24 games during a three-year stint at the club.

McCormack’s best days in front of goal coincidently continue to be the period of his career where he plied his trade at Elland Road, having scored 58 times in 157 appearances for a goal every 198 minutes.

With our own struggles in front of goal last season, fans have been discussing if McCormack could still cut it in the Championship and if a return to West Yorkshire should be on the cards for the 5 ft 7 forward…
