Mings just received his first call-up to the England squad and credited Terry for his recent hot run of form.
"He has developed my game for sure," said Mings.
"John Terry is just another great example of somebody I can learn from, who has been there and achieved everything I would want to achieve in the game.
"To learn from him and take little pieces of advice from him is something I feel really fortunate to be able to do.
"We do a lot of work on clips and reviewing my performances. So I feel like I'm in a really good place and I have a really good mentor to learn from."
