Former Bournemouth and Ipswich midfielder Holland believes that this is a great signing for Eddie Howe’s side, and has backed Mings to be a success in the Premier League.
Big potential and plenty of improvement to come from Tyrone Mings. Seems a lot of money right now though - good deal for @Official_ITFC— Matt Holland (@mattholland8) June 25, 2015
When Aaron Cresswell went for £3.5m then you've got to be happy with that money for Mings. @afcbournemouth getting a good player though— Matt Holland (@mattholland8) June 25, 2015

Good signing from Bournemouth
Mings was one of the best young defenders in the Championship, and he could prove to be a valuable signing for Bournemouth, who will be aiming to stave off relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
The 22-year-old scored one goal and created 56 chances in 42 Championship appearances in the 2014-15 campaign.
The youngster had a pass accuracy of 63% and a shot accuracy of 45%, and won 69 headers, 50 dribbles and 78 tackles.
According to The Guardian, Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United were all interested in securing the services of Mings this summer.
The Daily Star reported of Arsenal’s interest in the English youngster, who can play both as a centre-back and as a left-back.
