Aston Villa have finally completed the signing of Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings. The defender was part of the Villa squad that gained promotion from the Championship last season having joined in January.
He left a lasting impression at the club, helping to solidify the defence during the club’s remarkable 12 game run that culminated in the club gaining promotion to the Premier League.
Bournemouth and Aston Villa had been locked in talks over the past few weeks over a suitable transfer fee. However, both sides agreed to a £20 million transfer fee and Aston Villa finally got their man.
Villa boss Dean Smith revealed his delight about the transfer and believes that the player can develop his game to the next level.
Mines is the sixth signing for the club after permanent deals for loanees Kortney Hause and Anwar El Ghazi. The club have also brought in Matt Targett, from Southampton, Jota from Birmingham and broken their transfer record to sign Wesley Moraes from Club Brugge.
Villa are now said to be closing in on a £10 million transfer for Egypt midfielder Trezeguet, from Kasimpasa.
Mings is a good signing for the Villans as he could help solidify the defence ahead of a tough season next season.
