Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings feels he is fit and ready to finally have a big season at the Vitality Stadium this term. Mings has made just 17 appearances for the Cherries since his £8m move from Ipswich Town three years ago, with injuries plaguing his progress on the south coast.
Knee and spine problems have frustrated the powerful defender but Mings is now hoping he can put his woes behind him as he looks to have a big impact under manager Eddie Howe this season.
He told the Daily Echo: “I feel as if I’ve said it’s a big season for me for the past three seasons.
“Every season which ticks on, I’m not playing as much as I would like and it’s more frustrating than I can put into words.
“I’m a footballer and I just want to play. That’s my job and my passion. To be unable to show what I can do is the most frustrating thing.
“But I’m in a good place now. I feel fit and strong.”
