Tyrone Mings agrees long-term Bournemouth deal
Last Updated: 06/09/17 1:17pm
Versatile defender Tyrone Mings has signed a new long-term contract with Bournemouth.
The 24-year-old arrived from Ipswich in the summer of 2015, only to suffer a serious knee injury on his debut.
However, he has bounced back from that unfortunate start and has made 13 appearances for Eddie Howe's side, although he was also suspended for five matches last season, following an incident involving Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Cherries have not revealed the length of the deal for the defender.
Mings told the club website: "It was an easy decision for me, because I'm very settled down here.
"The first two years of my time wasn't an easy one, with trying to get in the team and getting injured on my debut.
"But I came out of it the other end, had a bit of a run in the team last year, and feel like I am in a good place now.
"I'm over the moon to be staying."

Steve Cook, Harry Arter, Adam Smith and Dan Gosling have also agreed new Bournemouth contracts this summer and chief executive Neill Blake said: "I'm delighted that Tyrone is the latest player to sign a new deal with us.
"He had a very tough start to life here with a serious injury but has come out the other side a better player and person for the experience he has been through.
"Tyrone is a player of huge talent and potential, an exceptional athlete, and someone who has a very bright future at this club."
