Last summer, having survived a flirtation with relegation, the Fulham support could on watch on as the club parted company with its two main strikers, Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack.

Dembele, with his contract up, went to Glasgow Celtic with Fulham receiving what`s called a compensation fee for his development of approximately £500,000.

Since moving to Celtic, Dembele has seen his career flourish and now there is talk of the young Frenchman being capable of attracting transfer bids of around £20 million.

As for McCormack, he was sold to our Championship rivals, Aston Villa, with the Scottish international commanding a fee of £12 million.

However, unlike his former strike partner Dembele, McCormack has struggled to get regular first team action.

Today, lurking in the sports pages of The Sun is the revelation that, after just five months at Villa Park, McCormack is deemed as surplus to requirements.

The suggestion our source is implying is that Aston Villa are looking to do a player-exchange deal with Norwich City, with the Aston Villa manager, Steve Bruce, wanting to bring the Norwich City wing-back Robbie Brady to the club.

It is, in our opinion, a staggering indication of how fortunes, when moving clubs, can differ so vastly!
