No more moaning. It looks like Villa have signed Tyrone

Aston Villa have today completed the loan signing of Bournemouth's Tyrone Mings.

The versatile defender joins Villa until the end of the season on a short term loan deal.

The latest news was that Mings was undergoing his medical at Bodymoor Heath this morning, but as confirmed by Laurie Whitwell of The Daily Mail, it seems that the deal has been completed.

Villa sealed the deal with a £1 million loan fee, and will likely be paying the entirety of Mings' wage.

Tyrone Mings moved to Bournemouth a couple of years ago from Ipswich Town, but hasn't made much of an impact at the club despite his promise.

Mings, who has played at left-back and centre-half throughout his career thus far will add to Villa's defensive depth, but questions will arise about his fitness, with the defender having suffered a fair few injuries in his time at Bournemouth thus far. What's more, what can he offer that Kortney Hause can't? And if he can offer more than Hause, why was Hause signed on loan?

At any rate, I'm sure Aston Villa fans will be appreciating the addition of Tyrone Mings to Villa's back-line.
