Nordic/Corded phenotype came from EEF?

Considering that the Nordic a.k.a Corded and Mediterranean phenotypes are pretty similiar, except pigmentation and stature, and that they are differents from both UP types (WHG) and Kurgan types.

A SYNOPSIS OF THE PHYSICAL ANTHROPOLOGY OF THE CORDED WARE COMPLEX ON THE BACKGROUND OF THE EXPANSION OF THE KURGAN CULTURES, Menk, 1980

The Corded Ware people on the other hand, are of a very common, ubiquitous, morphotype, that is encountered in large parts of Europe, since Early Neolithic through all the subsequent periods.

The morphological persistence of this stock is clearly demonstrated: it is first documented in the Linear Potter group, and it continues all the way through time, from Early Neolithic until Bronze Age (Aunjetitz) -

The Corded Ware complex s.l. is biologically heterogeneous. The local groups of the core area (Central Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland) form a very homogeneous block, issued from the local "Old Europe" substratum and persisting until Aunjetitz at least. This block show no biological affinities to the Ukrainian Kurgan populations.

I'm talking only about phenotypic characteristics not genotype (we now know that Corded people had lot of steppe genes)
