Aston Villa fans react on Twitter as Everton reportedly eye Tyrone Mings

Aston Villa’s win at the weekend appears to have handed Dean Smith’s men a real lifeline as they look to stay in the Premier League – and may have dealt a small blow to some of their top flight rivals already reportedly looking at their players ahead of the summer.

The Villans are now four points off safety with three games remaining. It is going to be a big ask for Smith’s side to get out of trouble, but their win over Crystal Palace will have given them plenty of belief.

The report noted that the Toffees look set to battle Manchester United for his signature. And it was suggested that he is valued at around £30 million.

The suggestion that Mings could leave this summer has seemingly divided some of the Villa fans on social media.

Some believe that they should have few qualms about selling the centre-back, particularly if they are offered a significant sum for their 2019 signing.

They believe that he has not vindicated the club’s decision to sign him permanently last year. He has made some costly mistakes and struggled, at times, to take his inspired form in the Championship to the next level.

However, there are others who want to see the 27-year-old given a lot more time. They have suggested that he was dealt a tough hand this season with Smith signing a host of new defenders.

And they remain convinced that he is the best defender at the club.

A brilliant performance from Mings this Thursday meanwhile, could boost Villa’s chances of staying up. But it may also leave Everton even more determined to make a move in the coming weeks.


But for now, here is what some of the Villa supporters make of the reports…
