Aston Villa: Newcastle eyeing move for Tyrone Mings

Aston Villa: Newcastle eyeing move for Tyrone Mings -Aston Villa News

Newcastle United have been linked with a big-money move for Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings.

The Lowdown: Mings’ future in doubt

Mings, described as ‘outstanding’ by Gabby Agbonlahor, has made 127 appearances for Villa and has once again been a regular this season under both Dean Smith and Steven Gerrard.

The club captain has missed just two Premier League fixtures during the current campaign and is now valued at a career-high £28.8m by Transfermarkt.

However, despite being a regular and seemingly at the top of his game, his Villa Park future is apparently up in the air.

Mings was name-checked as one of eight players who could leave ahead of Gerrard’s first full season in charge, and it looks as if a Premier League rival are now exploring a move.

The Latest: Newcastle interest

According to The Mirror, Mings is a £35m summer target for Newcastle, with Eddie Howe the man to sign the defender for Bournemouth back in 2015.

The report adds that Gerrard could be persuaded to green-light a big-money sale, providing he can bring in Joe Gomez from Liverpool, in what would be the Villans’ third-biggest sale ever after Jack Grealish and Christian Benteke.

Would you sell Mings this summer?

Yes, get him gone!

Yes, get him gone!

No, keep him!

No, keep him!

The Verdict: Another needed?

Should Mings depart and Gomez arrive, Villa would still have four senior centre-backs on the books. Gomez could join Calum Chambers, Kortney Hause and Ezri Konsa at Villa Park, however, the latter of the trio is out injured for four months with a knee problem.

Therefore, it could make sense to bring in another centre-back over the coming months ahead of Gerrard’s first full season in what could be a busy summer with NSWE willing to spend over £150m.
