Some bloke called Alex Billingham has tweeted deal done at £12.5m and will be announced in next 24 hours
Blimey if thatís the case that makes Wesley price roughly double.... what a player he must be !?

Ignore, itís a fake account.
Just for my future info, from these idiots, how do you know that ?

Guy called Alex BILLINGHAM on twitter earlier said inside avfc sources told him Mings deal done for 12.5 million . Since then heís suggested an official announcement at 6pm.

Can anyone comment on this guy or sources ?

Matt Law, Daily Torygraph, has said itís a fake account.

For this one if you look at his past tweets it's pretty obviously a Villa fan taking the piss.  But the usual obvious clues for bullshit accounts are number of followers and number of tweets.

I'm seriously thinking of muting #avfc on Twitter. It's currently a minute by minute Villa wanking frenzy all day long and then nobody is signed.

I'll know we've signed Mings when he's announced on Pravda.

I agree. Some of the shit is cringeworthy and annoying. Iím delighted we went but can we start acting like we are meant to be a PL club again vs appearing like we are giddy about getting there for the first time.

Heís a terrible fake. Changed his profile since this morning from claiming to be Telegraph (mind you not sure it says which one) to being freelance.

If you look back to 1-2/8/18, in the space of a day or so itís confirmed weíd signed Snodgrass, Grealish has signed for Spurs for £25m, Gary Monk has left Blues, Grealish is out for the season with ACL, then miraculously 4hours later
ďI can confirm Jack Grealish has had pictures taken wearing and holding the Tottenham Hotspur shirt. Expect the official announcement between 7-8pm this evening. #THFC #AVFCĒ

Oh and Benitez was sacked by Newcastle too. All in about a day this was.

Iím amazed people donít at least scroll down to look at the contradictory/untrue nonsense he doesnít even make an effort to hide, not even a good fake!

For what it's worth, in my line of work I have access to a database of journalists and he's not on there.

He was using a profile picture which wasn't him but a proper journalist and since then he has changed it to a cup of tea on a biscuit and a dog. That should tell you he's taking the piss.

Itís a shame when you block cretins it doesnít pull through to #avfc

In amongst the useful comments you get all the attention seeking ITKs / the football manager players who have no comprehension that players like Mings are owned by other clubs and you canít just Ďannouncethemí

Yeah, the 'announce Mings' is getting a bit daft now.

All the shit on Twitter is frankly getting embarrassing. People at work have asked me this morning why Mings is being forced to put "definitely not transfer related" on his Instagram stories now. According to Tyrone his academy account is getting "Announce Mings" DMs. Can these fools just calm down? At this rate he won't want to join.

Maybe he won't, we have other targets and I'm confident the club will make the right decisions.

Nah, I reckon he'd be pleased the fans are so keen on him signing permanently. It won't put him off.
