The 29-year-old signed for Fulham in an £11m deal from Leeds in 2014, and his 42 goals in 100 appearances for Fulham has seen him maintain his reputation as one of the most prolific finishers in the division.
Villa, now under the management of Roberto Di Matteo and ownership of Tony Xia, are looking to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, and as such are prepared to spend big to make sure that happens.
Thus far, they have signed Tommy Elphick, Pierluigi Gollini and Aaron Tshibola for a combined £12m, an outlay set to be doubled with the arrival of McCormack.
The Scottish international will now travel to Villa Park for talks and a medical, before being confirmed as Di Matteo’s newest signing in the coming days.
