The centre-back has banged in two goals and provided one assist in 33 matches for Aston Villa this term on all fronts.

Carlo Ancelotti is looking to shore up his defensive options and Aston Villa’s Mings happens to be a target.
The 27-year-old is a long-term target of Everton and could be a decent addition for Ancelotti’s side.
Everton are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Tyrone Mings has the talent to play many roles in defense.
According to the report, “Everton are the latest Premier League team to show an interest in Tyrone Mings. The Aston Villa defender is a wanted man as his club stares relegation in the face. If Villa go down, Mings and other stars are likely to be available on cut price deals. And the Birmingham Mail claims Everton and Manchester United are the two teams with the biggest interest in the center back. He has also been linked to Arsenal in the past.”
