Aston Villa are reportedly ready to move on Mile Jedinak and Ross McCormack in the summer, according to The Sun.

Steve Bruce is set to have a major overhaul at Villa Park once the current season comes to an end, with the two big names being mentioned as potential movers.

Jedinak, an Australia international, signed from Crystal Palace last summer, however he is thought to be on Premier League wages, something the club are desperate to reduce internally.

The midfielder has performed admirably for the Villans, having to operate as a centre-back many times this season, however at the age of 32-years-old, Bruce is thought to want to bring in younger replacements.

The other player mentioned in the report is Scotland striker McCormack, who is currently away from the club with a loan spell at Nottingham Forest.

Bruce is hopeful that he can offload the 30-year-old for good in the summer, after a public spat between the player and manager, which led to the forward moving to their Championship rivals in January.

Both players are thought to be some of the highest earners at the club, and if Bruce wants to improve the squad with younger talent, then he will have to reduce the Villians wage bill.

  1. As soon ad I read it was a report I though 50% accurate. Bruce has already said that Jedinak’s going nowhere. Mc Cormack, well maybe. Didn’t think he was a bad player. Pity Bruce can’t mend fences (or gates)over that one. If they got rid of all players on Prem wages at Villa Park we’d be fielding the reserve side!
