Tyrone Mings' five Premier League appearances this season all came in December

Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings has joined Championship club Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the season.

Mings, 25, was being chased by a number of Championship clubs.

However, the centre-back has chosen Villa and the chance to work with ex-England captain John Terry, who is part of boss Dean Smith's coaching staff.

Guilbert, 24, is a former France Under-21 international joined Caen from Bordeaux in 2017 after previously spending a year at the club on loan.
