Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is confident that £8million signing Tyrone Mings is a good fit for the Cherries, as they prepare for life in the Premier League.
The 22-year-old left-back has made the switch from Ipswich Town to try his luck in the top-flight and Howe is delighted to have brought in a player who he clearly rates very highly.
With his attributes and how we play, I am sure he will do very well and think it’s a good match.
He told the Bournemouth Echo: “He fits our profile perfectly and was the type of player we were looking for. He has very good physical attributes, he is tall and quick. He really does tick all the boxes in terms of his physicality.
“He is also good technically and can play. He fits our mould of what we look for in a full-back, so I am delighted and looking forward to seeing him play and develop into our squad.
“With his attributes and how we play, I am sure he will do very well and think it’s a good match.”
Mings is the latest player to make the move to the Goldsands Stadium, following goalkeepers Artur Boruc and Adam Federici and forwards Joshua King and Christian Atsu (loan) into the club.
Bournemouth can be backed at 2.10 to be relegated next season and are 1.72 to stay up, while the Cherries are available at 10.00 to finish in the top half of the table.
Meanwhile, as Mings makes the move to Bournemouth, both Brett Pitman and Ryan Fraser have moved in the opposite direction to join Ipswich.
Striker Pitman has joined the Tractor Boys on a three-year contract, while winger Fraser heads to Portman Road on a season-long loan.
