Tyrone Mings was back within the claret and blue family today as he joined us on a permanent deal.
Mings was a revelation as we earned promotion to the Premier League before heading off for the summer.
Fans have been eagerly anticipating his return with social media awash with message of #AnnounceMings.
Their pleas have been answered this afternoon as the powerful defender put pen to paper on his contract.
Not only that but Mings also revealed the new 2019/20 home kit as part of his announcement.
The new home kit will be on pre-order later this week and on sale on Wednesday 17th July. That will tie in with first team playing in the kit for the first time in Minnesota on our US Tour.
