Bournemouth visit Tyrone Mings’ Aston Villa this weekend.
Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has a quick reunion with former club Bournemouth this weekend.
Plenty of eyebrows were raised this summer when Villa signed Mings in a deal worth £26 million.
Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake has no doubt about Mings’ talent, as he prepares to face his former teammate.
Ake told Bournemouth’s official website: “He signed before I came here and suffered a bad injury. It was difficult for him but I think everyone could see what a good player he was.
“He was unfortunate with injuries but this was a good move for him.
“I think he will play a lot of games and you could see how well he did in the Championship for them. The fans love him there and I’m really happy for him.”
Ake was one of the reasons why Mings never really got a run in the Bournemouth team when he was fully fit.
Bournemouth value him even higher, quoting Leicester £75 million when they showed interest earlier this month, Sky Sports reported.
With the pair going head to head this weekend, Aston Villa might leave the match feeling they bagged a bargain.
