Villa are currently in the United States where they are continuing pre-season preparations ahead of their return to the big time.

It seems as though during training, Mings is having trouble dealing with Wesley, as he posted this message on his personal Instagram account.

This will be news to Villa supporters ears because they will feel if Wesley can trouble a player of Mings' standard in training then he may just cause havoc in England's top-flight.

Mings was Villa's standout defender during their promotion campaign last season, as his six-month loan spell helped inspire Dean Smith's side's return to the Premier League.

Villa have purchased eight players during this summer transfer window, as Mings was also one of them because he made his loan spell from Bournemouth a permanent one this month.

Now, he will be looking to do the business at the back for Villa, whilst Wesley will be hoping he can trouble Premier League defenders and score valuable goals for the club.
