Departing defender visits Portman Road to say his goodbyes and delivers a thank you message to the Blue Army
- Defender joins Bournemouth
- Thanks everybody at the Club
- Says he will be back at Portman Road soon
Tyrone Mings has issued a heartfelt thank you to everybody at Ipswich Town, after seeing his move to Bournemouth finalised today.
The left-back moves to the Premier League on a four year deal, after the Cherries met Town’s valuation for the 22 year-old.
Players, staff and fans have all wished the former Chippenham well on his new adventure and Tyrone popped into the Club to say his goodbyes and deliver this message to the supporters.
“I’ve had a lot of well wishes from loads of people at the Club and plenty of my teammates,” the former Town defender told the Club website.
“Obviously the captain and senior players such as Cole Skuse, Gerks and Luke Hyam have all been in touch.
“These are not just guys I speak to in the dressing-room but also they have become lifelong friends, so it’s nice.
“It’s a move I’m really excited to make, although with a hint of disappointment to be leaving Ipswich as I’ve loved my time here.
“I must thank the manager and Terry Connor for giving me a chance from non-League and everybody at the Club has been so supportive on this journey.
“The fans have also been great and I just want to say thank you to all the Town supporters. It’s been a learning curve for me but they’ve always stuck with me and I’m grateful to them for that.
Asked if he will be back at Portman Road to support the lads when he has chance, his answer was simple- yes.
“Of course I’ll be back, it’s the first place I’d head for,” added Tyrone.
“This Club will always have a special place in my heart and hopefully one day I can come back here and play at Portman Road again to give the fans a proper send off.
“That’s as long as they give me a good reception of course!”
