Aston Villa fans on Twitter are elated at reports that they are on the verge of re-signing Tyrone Mings following his loan spell at the club last season.

The Guardian have reported that Villa are set to sign the Bournemouth centre-back for a deal that could rise to £26.5 million.

It is said that after weeks of negotiations Villa have agreed to pay the initial fee of £20 million for Mings’ services after he helped Villa earn promotion to the Premier League in May.

Whilst the main talking point about the Mings deal is the price, the Villa Park faithful are just glad that they have signed up the 26-year-old, who was pivotal to their recent success.

It now means that Anwar El Ghazi, Kortney Hause and Mings – just some of the loan stars of last season have now put pen-to-paper on a permanent contract.

There’s no doubt that Villa will be looking to add more legs to their squad, with another right-sided centre-back needed, defensive-minded midfielder and perhaps two attackers.

Nonetheless, it seemingly looks like that Mings is heading back to the Midlands and if he can produce the goods that won him plaudits last season then it’ll bode well for Dean Smith and Villa.

Here is a selection of Villa fans reacting to those Mings rumours:
