Mick McCarthy: Has swooped for defender

Mick McCarthy: Has swooped for defender

The 19-year-old impressed boss Mick McCarthy during a behind-closed-doors friendly on Monday and will be available for selection once the paperwork has been processed.

Mings came through the Southampton youth academy alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but did not make the grade at St Mary's.

After his release he moved to non-league football with Yate Town before joining Chippenham, who were then managed by his dad, Adie.

Meanwhile, Tyrone Barnett has left Portman Road and returned to parent club Peterborough after suffering a knee ligament injury in training.

The striker had made three appearances for the Tractor Boys since joining in November.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
