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 afcb.co.uk...

"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."

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...
