Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has sustained a significant knee injury, the club has confirmed.

Many feared the worst when the England international was stretchered off the turf at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon and Mings’ unfortunate fate has now been communicated.

Following scans taken directly after the 5-1 defeat at Newcastle United, it can be asserted Mings’ knee damage is substantial and surgery will certainly be required.

It will be a lengthy rehabilitation process, perhaps similar to that of Diego Carlos judged on past experience at Bodymoor Heath.

Mings becomes the second Villa player to sustain a serious knee injury so early on in the season, merely days after Emiliano Buendía damaged his ACL in training.

BirminghamWorld wishes Mings a speedy recovery.
