Aston Villa fans react to Tyrone Mings developments

According to The Telegraph journalist John Percy on Twitter, Aston Villa are on the verge of completing the loan signing of Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings.

BBC Radio Nottingham presenter Robin Chipperfield had previously claimed that Nottingham Forest were the only club to have agreed a loan fee with the Cherries for Mings, but Villa look to have stolen a march on their Championship rivals.

The 25-year-old was not involved in Bournemouth’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday night and is widely expected to move on before Thursday’s deadline.

Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion have both been linked with a move, as per The Express and Star, but it seems that the former have won the race.

There is no question that Mings is a talent, but injuries have not helped the 6ft 5in defender, who has made just five Premier League appearances this season, according to Transfermarkt.

The Villa fans have been on social media offering their views on the developments and it would be fair to say that a number are keen for their club to get the deal over the line.

Indeed, the chance to secure a player of Mings’ quality on loan could have a huge say in their bid to make the Championship play-offs this season.
