The 26-year-old was called up to the England squad for the first time for the victories over Kosovo and Bulgaria during the last international break.

Mings played a key role in helping Villa secure their return to the Premier League via the Sky Bet Championship play-offs last season.

His loan move from Bournemouth was made permanent over the summer as Dean Smith brought him to Villa Park for £20m.
