Ipswich Town's Tyrone Mings offers to buy new shirts for fans after swapping squad number

Footballers often have a reputation for not caring about the fans that turn up to watch them every week, but that accusation can't be labelled at Ipswich Town's Tyrone Mings who has shown his class again.

After Town's squad numbers for the 2014/15 season were announced yesterday, the 21-year-old offered to buy new shirts for a couple of supporters who had already bought strips with his old number on the back.

Mings took the vacant number 3 shirt left by the departing Aaron Cresswell who joined West Ham United earlier this month, giving up the number 15 in the process.

Tom Pullen was one of the fans who had already bought a shirt with "Mings and "15" printed.

On seeing Tom's tweet, Mings took to Twitter to offer the teenager a new shirt with the correct number.

Mings didn't stop there though.

He repeated the gesture moments later to another supporter who had also been caught out by the switch.

It's not the first time that Mings has done something like this.

Back in March, the former Chippenham Town man gave away two tickets to a fan who couldn't afford to attend the Championship clash with Bolton Wanderers.
