It was reported that Aston Villa wanted to sign Bristol City star centre back Adam Webster for a reported £18-20 million, but the Robins wanted £25-£30 million. 

Now that Villa have signed Mings, it puts a bit of hope in Bristol City fans minds that they can keep hold of Adam Webster. The signing of Mings set Aston Villa back around £20 million pounds, the same that they were willing to spend on Adam Webster. The fact that Bristol City put such a big price tag on Adam Webster is to scare away Premier League teams from bidding smaller amounts for such a good player.

Webster was the player of the season in his first season at Bristol City and has instantly become a fan favourite at Ashton Gate. Fans really don’t want him to leave, as he has his new partner in defence back, Tomas Kalas, which Bristol City fans are extremely excited about after they were one of the best partnerships in the Championship last season.

Villa looked to bring in Webster to try and consolidate their position in the Premier League next season and make sure they stay where they want to be. Whereas Bristol City want/need Webster to stay to try and get to where they want to be, which is the promised land.

Overall, what does the signing of Tyrone Mings to Aston Villa mean for the Robins, it means that there should no longer be any interest from the Villans towards Adam Webster, as they have just purchased a new centre half.
