Mings set for permanent Villa deal after fee agreed
Reports claim Villa have agreed a fee which could rise to £25m with the Cherries and Mings is expected to complete contract negotiations with the newly-promoted Premier League side by Monday. Sky Sports say he will not be required to undergo a medical, having spent last season on loan at Villa Park. Mings joined Dean Smith's side on loan in the 2019 January transfer window and played a key part in the club's promotion to the Premier League via the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, making 18 appearances. The Cherries are happy to cash in on the player to help fund their own transfers this summer so the deal is a winner for all parties involved if it goes through.
