Video: Priceless Aston Villa announcement as they confirm new signing in touted £20m deal

Aston Villa confirmed the signing of Tyrone Mings on a permanent basis from Bournemouth on Monday, and their fans were loving the way they did it.

In turn, he will be delighted with the club’s ability to agree a deal, with BBC Sport noting that they’ll pay £20m for the commanding centre-half.

However, it was the announcement which delighted their supporters, as after an image emerged of Mings after the Championship playoffs final with him still in his Villa kit at the train station, as seen below, they’ve decided to have a bit of fun with it.

As seen in the video below, Mings is seen arriving at Witton station which is situated a short distance from Villa Park, now wearing the club’s new kit and appearing to be delighted to now be a Villa player outright.

Time will tell if he can help them stay up this season, but judging from the reaction, it’s undoubtedly a popular move amongst the fans who will be fully aware and know better than anyone the influence that he had for their backline last season to help them get back to the top flight.
