Tyrone Mings has taken to Twitter to give his reaction to joining Aston Villa on a permanent contract from Bournemouth.

Villa, who will play in the Premier League next season after clinching promotion from the Championship via the playoffs, have secured the services of Mings for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £20 million.

The 26-year-old defender spent the second half of last season on loan at the Villans from the Cherries.

 

According to WhoScored, Mings made 18 appearances in the Championship for Villa during the second half of last season, scoring two goals in the process.

The former Ipswich Town defender was a key figure in Dean Smith’s side during the second half of last season, and he is delighted to have returned to Villa Park on a permanent contract.

Villa are a very ambitious club, and they will be aiming to make a good impact in the Premier League next season.

The Villans are unlikely to challenge for a top-six finish in the Premier League, but Smith’s side should be looking to at least aim for a top-10 finish.
