Aston Villa have confirmed that English centre-back Tyrone Mings has signed a new contract with the club.
The 27-year-old’s deal was due to expire in 2024. The Athletic claim his new contract is for three-and-a-half years.
The 17-cap England international joined the Midlands club from Bournemouth in 2019 for around £20 million.
He has since featured in 149 games for Villa and was key to their promotion in his debut campaign.
Villa have won just one of the 12 league games Mings has not started since he joined the club. He has been a key player for the side.
The Midlands club are currently 11th in the Premier League after 22 games. They are seven points off the Europa Conference League spot.
Securing a European berth this term will not come easy, but they can challenge for a top-seven finish next season.
Mings is in a race against time to be fit for tomorrow’s game against Arsenal. Unai Emery’s side are looking to return to winning ways following back-to-back defeats.
Calum Chambers could fill in for Mings again as Villa aim to return to the top half of the table. They are also without summer signing Diego Carlos.
The Brazilian centre-back is close to resuming training, having spent six months out after surgery on his Achilles.
