Aston Villa hits huge price on key player – Reports


Aston Villa could be forced to sell defender Tyrone Mings this summer, according to reports.

The Lions’ central defender has proven to be a key player for the Dean Smith team this season after his permanent departure from Bournemouth.

After lending the second half of last season, during which time he helped Villa gain promotion to the Premier League, Smith saw fit to bring the Mings back to the club permanently.

Mings signed a long-term contract with the B6 in an agreement estimated at £ 20 million plus add-ons, but new reports say the defender could leave Villa Park this summer.

According to the Daily Star, Villa is seeking £ 40 million from any club wishing to sign the English international this summer.

If Villa decided to sell Mings for the aforementioned costs, it would make a significant profit on the costs paid to Bournemouth less than 12 months ago.

Since joining Villa on a permanent contract last summer, Mings has made 26 appearances and made his UK debut in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Bulgaria in October.
