Ipswich boss McCarthy: Palace tried hard for Mings

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy knows they face a battle to keep hold of fullback Tyrone Mings.

Arsenal are being linked with the youngster today.

McCarthy said: "Tyrone has been excellent for us.

"Crystal Palace made a big offer for him before the transfer window closed but we want him here for the long term.

"He's a young, exciting player who has made a lot of progress in his time here and it's great to see that his form has been noticed with this award.

"We've acknowledged that as a club too, which is why we offered him a long term deal. He's done great."
