yep. his time at villa really a magnificent indian summer after an already distinguished career - three years on i think it's said to be about £2.5m p.a. plus possibly a fourth year on £3.5m p.a.
eleven million quid [pretax] goes a long way, even these days.
From our friends @ Sky Sports:
"Ross McCormack will get a near-£1million bonus if Aston Villa are promoted to the Premier League, despite not playing a single game for the club this season, Sky Sports News understands.
The Scotland international has been on loan at Melbourne City in Australia after falling out with Villa boss Steve Bruce.
It is thought McCormack earns more than £2.3m a year while commitments in his deal - which has two years left to run - could result in an automatic increase to more than £3m if Villa win the play-offs."
