Bournemouth centre-half Tyrone Mings has made a massive impression on the Aston Villa fanbase following his arrival on a loan spell in the second half of the season and he’s impressed many with his performances on the pitch and his attitude off it as well.

Having quickly worked his way into our hearts, the vast majority of fans want him to be signed up regardless of what division we find ourselves in next season, and we’ll have the answer to that on Monday evening as we face Derby County in the Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley.

As for his own future, Mings has been saying all of the right things, especially with his social media interaction with fans and he certainly doesn’t sound like a player who is against a permanent deal being done at the end of the current campaign and he simply backed that up with two words that will delight everyone as he signed autographs.

Add that to some of his words from his round of interviews ahead of the Wembley clash – Birmingham Mail – it really does look promising.

“I needed to come out of Bournemouth, if I wasn’t going to get an opportunity there, and show people what I could do. I don’t think it has revived my career, it has probably just refreshed it. I am on a path at the moment where I am feeling good. Hopefully my career from here will go exactly where I want it to but I have also been in a position where looking too far ahead can trip you up and there are always things around the corner you don’t expect. I am in a great place mentally and physically at the moment. Hopefully we can all taste some success come the 27th.”


“My dad (Adrian) was in the crowd. I went to see my dad. It was a great occasion for us and like I said at the beginning there should be no shame in celebrating getting to the final. We are now focused on the job ahead. I think beyond me jumping into the crowd at the end, I have obviously made no secret of the fact I am really enjoying playing for these fans and this club. So I think that will stand us in good stead.”
