Newcastle United: PIF ‘waiting’ to sign Tyrone Mings

Newcastle United: PIF ‘waiting’ to sign Tyrone Mings -Newcastle United News

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Public Investment Fund (PIF) are reportedly now ‘waiting’ to sign Tyrone Mings for Newcastle United this summer.

The Lowdown: Down the pecking order?

With the signings of Boubacar Kamara and Diego Carlos, Mings may find himself falling down the pecking order at Aston Villa.

Having been left out of Gareth Southgate’s recent England squad, the six-foot-five colossus may need a move away in order to get more regular game time ahead of the winter World Cup in Qatar.

The Latest: Newcastle ‘waiting’

As per the print edition of The Daily Star (via The Daily Express), the St, James’ Park faithful are now ‘waiting in the wings’ to sign Mings.

Should Newcastle sign Mings?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, he is likely to cost them in the region of £30m, should they step up their interest.

The Verdict: Avoid

There is no doubt that Mings has his qualities, as Southgate has previously hailed him as an ‘outstanding leader’, demonstrated by captaining the Villa team.

However, he is 29 years of age, and £30m would be a big outlay for someone who is likely to decline over the next few years.

He has also come under criticism by some of his own supporters for some of his performances this season, which is perhaps why he has been left out of the England squad.

Nonetheless, the Magpies still hold an interest in him, and given that he shares the same agent as Eddie Howe, this is a deal that could very well go through.
