Agree with all of the above. His clean sheets record for England is outstanding and heís rarely put a foot wrong when playing. Thatís what happens when you have the likes of Rice, Phillips or Henderson in front of you. Itís a keep from me.

I love Mings, and would hate to see him leave. I'd hate it even more if he went to play for the Saudis, and I can't see a man of his character ever doing that.

I think another deep lying midfielder that can dictate the play will be high on the wanted list. Liverpool thrive on Thiago being able to find the runs of the full backs from deep, I don't think our midfield re-shaping is finished by any stretch.

Mings is the central defensive version of David James. All the talent and attributes, but too bright to not let his mind wander and make the odd stupid mistake, which often proves costly. He has done more for Villa than a lot of players down the years though, and deserves a shot with a better midfield in front of him.

Linked to Tammy tonight, can strike that one off our summer bingo card.

Interesting point. I also wonder if that may influence the decision of other players going to the north east.

The comparison with James is right on the money.

Indeed. A massive part of our revival as a club.

We might sign better players but - unless TM himself wants out - I'd want to see him stay.

Mings has been a good servant to the club and a good leader. We should be looking to keep hold of him.

I have been a big critic of Mings and his customary fuck up
However they seem to have become fewer and with someone breaking up or holding play in front of him he could be even better,  or no luiz giving away needless freekicks in dangerous areas
A big keep from me

Sources next to Kamara in a 4-2-3-1 formation would be top class, canít see West Ham selling him though unless itís stupid money.

I would imagine the plan is for Costa to compete with Mings, and Konsa or Cambers to compete with the next centre back that comes in (too many links for us not to be looking at another). In which case I imagine we are trying to sell Hause, not Mings.

The only way I see Mings going is if he sulks like Targett did when he lost his automatic starter status.

However if we got upwards of £30m we would have done quite well. I'd rather he stay and compete given the choice, but not if it meant not buying a centre forward due to lack of funds.

What channel is the champs league final on? Hope its not BT with Steve fucking McManaman. It would be nice to have some balanced commentary, not all people in the UK want Liverpool to win, can't stand the baised comms when an English team is involved, acting all down and depressed if a foreign team dares to take the lead.

Unfortunately can't see past a Liverpool win and an enormous wankfest.
