​Bournemouth boss Howe: Mings will grow in Aston Villa playoff run

Bournemouth loanee Tyrone Mings will benefit from playing in the Championship play-offs with Aston Villa, according to his manager.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe believes that Mings will be able to learn a lot given the stakes involved in those games.

The 26-year-old has been at Villa Park since January, as he wished to get regular football after struggling to start for the Premier League club.

Speaking about Mings, Howe told the Daily Echo: "These are games as a footballer you want to be involved in and you are desperate to experience.

"It will be great for Tyrone's education to play in those games, to experience that kind of pressure – those games are some of the most pressured you would ever face because there is so much on them.

"It is great for his development here that he samples that and it will make him a better player."
