Aston Villa: Fans react as Tyrone Mings is named club captain -Aston Villa News

Aston Villa announced on Saturday morning that Tyrone Mings is the new club captain, and unsurprisingly a number of Villa fans were quick to share their thoughts on the news via social media.

Villa had an opening for a new permanent club captain after Jack Grealish sealed a £100m move to Manchester City earlier this month.

Mings skippered Villa in 12 successive Premier League games last season when his England team-mate was out injured, and he has now taken the armband on a full-time basis under Dean Smith. The 28-year-old still has three years remaining on his Midlands deal and is eight appearances shy of reaching 100 for Villa.

His first game as permanent captain came against Watford on Saturday, with Villa slipping to an opening weekend defeat at Vicarage Road, but the defender still gave a decent performance as he won six duels against the Hornets.
