Ipswich Town's new recruit Tyrone Mings has signed an 18 month contract, and has been handed the number 15 shirt.
Mings was at the Southampton Academy between the ages of 8 and 15 when he played alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who is now at Arsenal. More recently Mings played for Yate Town and Chippenham Town in the Southern League.
Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy said 'He's quick, he's 6 foot 3 inches, he loves a tackle. He's only 19 but plays the game like a bloke. He's a good talker, organises, and we're delighted to have him'.
