Mings: Looking forward to the next four years

Mings: Looking forward to the next four years

AFC Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings has signed a new contract with the Cherries.

Mings made the move to the south coast in June 2015, the deal was officially undisclosed but reports of a fee in the region of £8million was reported, whilst Cherries winger Ryan Fraser made the move in the opposite direction on loan.

AFC Bournemouth striker Brett Pitman also moved to Ipswich on a permanent basis.

Just 6 minutes into his Premier League debut Mings suffered a devastating knee injury and was sidelined for over a year.

Whilst AFC Bournemouth announced the new contract as a 'long-term deal', Mings himself posted on Twitter that he was looking forward to the next four years with the Cherries.

Mings told

"It was an easy decision for me because I`m very settled down here.

"The first two years of my time wasn`t an easy one, with trying to get in the team and getting injured on my debut.

"But I came out of it the other end, had a bit of a run in the team last year and feel like I am in a good place now. I`m over the moon to be staying."

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake added...

'...He had a very tough start to life here with a serious injury but has come out the other side a better player and person for the experience he has been through.

"Tyrone is a player of huge talent and potential, an exceptional athlete and someone who has a very bright future at this club."

Your Say...

Good. It's strange considering he's been here over two seasons and only has a handful appearances but he's managed to show enough in that time to make it seem like a very sensible move indeed.

We all baulked at £8 million (+?) on a Championship defender when he came but at today's prices...
