Report: West Brom keen on summer move for Ipswich defender Tyrone Mings

West Brom

West Brom are reportedly keen on signing Tyrone Mings this summer, with West Ham and Newcastle also interested.

According to the Express and Star, West Brom are keen on signing Tyrone Mings, who impressed in the Championship during the 2014/15 season.

The 22-year-old left-back made 42 appearances in the Championship last term, as Ipswich secured passage through to the play-off semi-finals - where they lost to local rivals Norwich.

Despite his young age and lack of past experience, Mings was one of the best performing left-backs in the entire Championship, and earned rave reviews for much of the season.

The Mirror linked him with a move to Newcastle earlier in the campaign, whilst the Mail claimed that West Ham could sign him as a replacement for Aaron Cresswell - who also used to play for Ipswich.

Now the Baggies have joined the race for his signature, and although they may not be able to offer European football - such as West Ham - or the financial benefits of the Magpies, Tony Pulis can assure him of consistent first-team football.

The left-back position is one that needs strengthening this summer, with Sebastien Pocognoli’s casting out leaving Joleon Lescott to play out of position.

A natural left-sided full-back is needed at the Hawthorns, and Mings has proven his ability to impress, and his physical style of play would work well in Tony Pulis’s tactical system.

Ipswich are not looking to sell him, but if approached with right price, Mings may force a move through to guarantee a switch to the Premier League.
