Speculation has suggested that there has been a lot of interest in AFC Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings during the January transfer window.

Bournemouth man in demand, where will he end up?

Reports have stated that Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa, Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa have all been linked with interest in the 25-year-old, with West Bromwich Albion and Aston Villa the apparent favourites.

Mings made the move to the south coast in June 2015, shortly after the Cherries had won promotion from the Championship, the then left-back became the first high profile signing of AFC Bournemouth’s Premier League era and at the time new record signing.

The Cherries agreed on an £8million fee with Ipswich Town, however just minutes into his Premier League debut he suffered a devastating knee injury which would eventually sideline him for around 19 months.

His opportunities have been severely limited, with another back injury also sidelining him for most of last season.

Overall Mings has made 17 Premier League appearances and appears to be well down the pecking order with Steve Cook, Nathan Ake, Simon Francis, Charlie Daniels all selected ahead of Mings at centre back.

The Cherries have also recently signed Chris Mepham from Brentford, a move that sees Mings drop another notch down the order.

With 48 hours remaining it would appear that Mings could spend the final half of the season away from Dean Court.

However, Howe appears to have ruled out speculation over a permanent move.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo

“We will wait and see but that’s (loan move is) a possible.

“Tyrone has been dreadfully unlucky since he joined the club.

“He’s a talented player and is desperate to play.”

Your say…

I’d be happy for a loan if it gave him the opportunity to prove a level of fitness that made him more useful in the Prem than just a training exercise for the paramedics. – Join the conversation, click here.
