CHERRIES defender Tyrone Mings has completed a deadline day move to Aston Villa.

The 25-year-old joins the Championship club on loan until the end of the season.

The Daily Echo understands there is no oboligation or option for Aston Villa to buy Mings in the summer.

In recent weeks it had been claimed a host of Championship clubs were interested in signing the former Ipswich ace on loan.

Mings has faced limited opportunities in the Cherries starting XI this campaign, with just 141 minutes of Premier League football to his name.

Eddie Howe also bolstered his centre-back options in the January transfer window with the addition of Chris Mepham from Brentford.
