Heavily linked with Arsenal in January – is he football’s nicest man?

first_imgIpswich defender Tyrone Mings made his mum very proud when he apparently cleared her debt.Posting the exchange on his Instagram account, @tyronemings, the 22-year-old wrote: “This is why I do it, this makes it worth it.”MINGS IS GOING TO BE A TOP PLAYERMings was released by Southampton in 2009 when the Saints’ youth budget was cut and Ipswich ended up signing him from non-league Chippenham Town in 2012 for just £10,000. In January he was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, who are thought to be big admirers of the young defender.This latest act of generosity is one of a number of recent charitable acts. In 2013 Mings spent Christmas Day feeding homeless people and a year later, when he was given the no.3 shirt by Ipswich ahead of the 2014/15 season, he offered to replace the tops bought by fans bearing his old no.15.Last March he left two tickets for a fan at the entrance to Portman Road when, after a brief conversation with him on Twitter, he discovered the supporter could not afford to go to a match.
