Some Aston Villa fans have reacted to a transfer claim linking Tottenham Hotspur with a summer move for Tyrone Mings.
Mings arrived at Villa Park last summer on a permanent deal from Bournemouth for just over £20m and he has played at the heart of Dean Smith’s defence for the most part this term, making a total of 32 appearances thus far in the Premier League.
Villa, who head into the final Premier League game of the season against West Ham United, have relied heavily on the likes of Mings since football’s restart as they seek to remain in England’s top flight past this season.
With the potential of relegation to England’s second tier still a possibility, Mings has now received interest from both Everton and Man United, whilst a fresh report has former Villa striker Darren Bent linking Spurs with a move.
“For them, I thought well you need defenders, I thought what about Tyrone Mings going from Aston Villa to Spurs?,” Bent said.
“£30million, natural left-sided player, he’s got a little bit of pace about him as well and so that could work. I’d be surprised if they’re not in the market for him.”
Reacting to the news via Aston Villa News on Twitter, fans gave an opinion on whether or not Mings should leave the club. Many seemed to suggest the same thing, that £30m wouldn’t be enough for them to want to sell him.
Make it 40 and I’ll buy his train ticket!!
