It’s that time again. With Wembley awaiting Aston Villa’s presence, all fans are hoping the Villans can pull through and return to the Premier League.
To find yourself in the play-off final two years in a row is some achievement and Dean Smith should take massive credit for what he has thus far achieved in a short space of time at Villa Park.
A depleted, beaten group of players is what he most likely saw when walking into the changing room in October but now Aston Villa are a group of individuals highly motivated to achieve what was the unthinkable at one stage in the season and that’s gain promotion.
The turnaround hasn’t been easy but one thing that definitely made it more straightforward is the impact Tyrone Mings has made.
Mings (who is valued at £3.1 million on Transfermarkt) has been nothing short of brilliant since joining Aston Villa in January.
Alone, he has massively helped improve their overall ability to defend and Aston Villa have surged into the play-off final almost because of it.
His form has been so good that plenty of teams will be flocking to try and sign him as well, though if Villa do gain promotion back into the Premier League, they should really fancy their chances of keeping him on a permanent basis.
The 26-year-old was completely out of favour at Bournemouth and this loan to the Villans has brought him back to life and he’s currently playing some of the best football of his life.
Their fate is soon to be sealed and as soon as it does happen, great effort must straight away go into signing Tyrone Mings.
