Leeds United have made an enquiry for Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack as Thomas Christiansen looks to bolster his squad further, according to the Daily Mail.

The Whites have had an expansive transfer window as an array of new men have arrived at Elland Road, with the Yorkshire club unbeaten in the first three games of the new campaign.

Leeds have Chris Wood as their attacking talisman but have looked to add reinforcements in the final third this summer, with Caleb Ekuban signed to provide another striking option.

With talk that Pierre-Michel Lasogga will also join from Hamburg, a deal for McCormack would come as something of a shock for the Elland Road faithful.

The Scotland international has been frozen out at Villa by Steve Bruce, with the Midlands club’s manager publicly criticising the striker last season after he missed a training session because his electric gates did not open.

The Villa Park side loaned McCormack out to Nottingham Forest in the second half of 2016-17, while the attacker has not been part of the Villans side so far this season.

Bruce has preferred to partner Gabriel Agbonlahor with Scott Hogan in attack this term, while Jonathan Kodjia is making strides towards a recovery from injury also.

As such, McCormack looks increasingly likely to leave Villa before the end of the month in search of a new start.

The Scot was on Leeds’ books for four years between 2010 and 2014 before being sold to Fulham and was relatively potent in front of goal for the Whites.

However, McCormack’s potential return to Yorkshire would surely divide the club’s supporters, with it remaining to be seen just how much first-team action the 30-year-old would see under Christiansen.
