Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings has indicated that his long-term future may lie away from the Vitality Stadium. The 26-year-old’s time on the South Coast has been blighted by injury and he was sent out on loan to Championship club Aston Villa during the January transfer window in order to get some first-team minutes under his belt.

Mings has impressed during his time at Villa Park, playing a major role in the club’s current six-match unbeaten run that has seen them move into the play-off places. It seems Villa would like to turn Mings’ loan move into a permanent deal and the feeling could well be mutual, with the centre-back having liked posts on social media suggesting he should extend his stay with the club.
A lot could depend on whether Villa earn promotion to the Premier League, as top-flight clubs are also believed to be interested, most notably Southampton. Bournemouth could also decide to thrust Mings back into their first-team next season and it the Cherries that hold all the cards regarding the former Ipswich star’s future, as he has over three years to run on his contract at the Vitality.
