Aston Villa will look to sign a new left-sided centre-back this summer to replace club captain Tyrone Mings, Football Insider report.
The Lowdown: Summer rebuild
Villa have struggled in recent weeks, losing their last four Premier League games. They have dropped down to 15th in the table as a result, and it looks as if Steven Gerrard is planning a major rebuild ahead of his first season in charge.
How many signings do Villa need to make this summer?
One of those is Mings, who has been a regular at Villa Park this season, and a further update regarding the England international has now emerged.
The Latest: Source shares update
Football Insider shared a story on Monday morning after being informed by a Villa source. They led with a title suggesting that Villa want a new defensive star to replace Mings, with Gerrard not convinced about the 29-year-old.
Mings has just over two years remaining on his current contract and is actually represented by the same agency as Gerrard.
Would you sell Mings this summer?
Yes, get him gone!
No, keep him!
The Verdict: Busy summer
It looks as if Villa will have the funds to make some big-money signings, and you’d expect that could grow beyond £150m with funds brought in by possible departures.
