Aston Villa have learned how much they will need to pay to sign Tyrone Mings. According to the print edition of The Sunday Mirror via The Daily Star, Mings will cost £15m.
The left-footed centre-back joined Aston Villa on loan in January and helped to turn their season around. Aston Villa were in midtable when Mings joined but with the towering defender at the back, the defence improved considerably.
Mings was a rock at the back as Aston Villa finished in the top six before winning the play-offs. And after sealing their return to the top-flight, the Villans want Mings permanently.
Bournemouth are ready to sell the ex-Ipswich Town man for £15m. And Mings is said to be very keen on returning to Villa Park, where he became a fan favourite.
As long as Aston Villa are prepared to bankroll this £15m transfer, it looks like it could go ahead. The 26-year-old might be returning to the West Midlands this summer.
After learning his price, Aston Villa fans discussed whether Mings is worth £15m on Twitter. Here are some of the best tweets.
Would pay £500 million for him

It’s generally the market rate.
He’s been head and shoulders above pretty much anyone I’ve seen at Villa in 20 years.
Up there with Mellberg, Laursen & McGrath

Yep, do it. Worth £15 million all day long.

I never thought we would be getting Mings, but for 15 mill I would do the deal straight away. I would love to see him at Villa next season
