Aston Villa have now secured the signatures of three of their loan stars from last season in Anwar El Ghazi, Kortney Hause and now Tyrone Mings.

Aston Villa fans on Twitter have made it clear that they're not bothered that they have paid a big sum of money for Tyrone Mings.

On Monday, Villa announced that Bournemouth defender Mings had made the switch from the South Coast to the Midlands, with the fee reported to be in the region of £26.5 million [Guardian].

 

It is said that the deal for the popular 26-year-old centre-back could rise to that fee of 26.5 million, and if it does then he will be Villa's record signing.

From the perspective of Villa supporters, he is well worth it because the defensive powerhouse has already given so much to the club.

He was a key part as to why Dean Smith's side earned promotion to the Premier League in May, with his six-month loan spell being an inspiring one.

It could even be argued that Mings has already paid back Villa the fee they have supposedly paid for him.

Even if Villa go back down, and fans wouldn't want that happening again, players such as Mings have ensured they are now back on a very healthy financial track with that promotion win.

Nonetheless, he will be looking to make his mark on the Premier League in August, with Villa's first game to be against Champions League finalists Tottenham.
