Hull City and Nottingham Forest are interested in AFC Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings, according to journalist Tom Barclay on Twitter.

The 26-year-old is set to leave the Cherries this month and has also been linked with Leeds United, Aston Villa, West Brom and Derby County.

Mings joined Bournemouth in June 2015 on a four-year contract from Ipswich Town for a fee in the region of £8 million. His time with Eddie Howe’s side has been affected by injury and he has managed just a handful of appearances in his four seasons there.

The 6ft 5inc left-back was on the books at Southampton and Bristol Rovers as a youngster before spells in non-league with Yate Town and Chippenham Town.

He signed for Ipswich in 2013 for just £10,000 and went onto break into their first-team. He impressed as a youngster for the Tractor Boys and went onto play 63 games for them. Mings was tipped for a big future in the game, hence why Bournemouth forked out big money to land him.

He needs to playing regular first-team football at this stage of career so a move away would be ideal for him.

Nottingham Forest are looking to bring in some more players before the transfer deadline as Martin O’Neill looks to put his own stamp on his newly inherited squad. Mings would offer him another option in defence.

Hull City, on the other hand, are getting busy in the transfer window with Mings’ Bournemouth teammate Marc Pugh set to join them soon.
