Defender talks to Ipswich Player about that Premier League bid and his bid to reach the top flight with Blues

Tyrone Mings has told Ipswich Player that while he was flattered by Crystal Palace making a bid for him he’s fully focused on playing his part in helping Town get to the Premier League

The 21-year-old defender was the subject of a substantial offer from the Eagles on transfer deadline day but the bid was rejected by Blues’ owner Marcus Evans. 

“When I found out that Crystal Palace were interested, I spoke to the manager,” Tyrone explained to Ipswich Player. 

“He told me straight that he didn’t want me to be sold, that I wouldn’t be going anywhere. He said that he wanted me settled here and part of his squad going forward and that was obviously nice to hear. 

“All the Crystal Palace interest was flattering. I’d be lying if I said otherwise –with a Premier League club willing to pay money for me at this stage of my career but it’s in the past now.

“I’ve obviously only been in the game a short while and things have gone well for me at Ipswich. I’m certainly very happy and I’m looking forward to the future here. I want to help the Club reach the Premier League. That is the goal for me and everyone else here.”
