Tyrone Mings is a left-sided defender born on March 19, 1993, who plays for Aston Villa. Mings shot to prominence when he signed for Ipswich Town from non-league Chippenham Town in 2012 for just £10,000. Having impressed at Championship level, he then joined Bournemouth for £8million in June 2015. However, he suffered serious knee ligament injury just 12 minutes into his Premier League debut as a second-half substitute against Leicester City in August 2015.
A tall, versatile full-back or central defender, Mings joined Aston Villa on loan in January 2019 and signed for £20million after steering the Villans to promotion with a series of commanding displays. He won his first England cap in October 2019 in a 6-0 win away in Bulgaria, though the game was marred by constant racist chants from home supporters, resulting in the game being paused more than once.
