Tyrone Mings has now completed his £26.5million move to Aston Villa, whilst Connor Mahoney has joined Millwall for a fee in-excess of £1million.
Tyrone Mings’ move to Aston Villa was confirmed on Monday.
Mings took to social media to say…
“I close this chapter of my career with a very heavy heart, sometimes things don’t work out how you planned & unfortunately I wasn’t able to achieve the things I wanted to at @afcbournemouth – I will be forever grateful for the opportunity the manager and the club gave me

Mahoney has been sold to Millwall for “just over £1million” according to the Daily Echo.
The 22-year-old made the move to Dean Court in 2017 from Blackburn Rovers, for a fee set by a tribunal at £425,000, giving the Cherries another profit on a player who has had no impact on the first team, with Mahoney making just two appearances for AFC Bournemouth.
However former club Blackburn Rovers are due 20% of that profit, due to a sell-on clause set by the tribunal two years ago.

Played for a Championship club.
Signed by a Premier League club but never played having been loaned out to 2 further Championship clubs.
At the end of it, all end up playing for another Championship club, just like you did before all this nonsense.
2 years and not really any better off.
Genuine question: will a player feel like this was a waste of time in an already short career? Will he feel he’s had a good couple of years’ wages and the kudos of being involved with a Premier League team? Will he feel like he’s back at square one after wasting his time with us? Will he at least have learned something from someone like Marc Pugh or Eddie Howe even if it didn’t work out? – Join the conversation, click here.
