“The first two years of my time wasn’t easy, with trying to get in the team and getting injured on my debut,” he told the club website.”I came out of it the other end, had a bit of a run in the team last year and feel like I am in a good place now. I’m over the moon to be staying.”Mings has made 13 appearances for Eddie Howe’s side, with two of them coming this season. He was injured six minutes into his Premier League debut during the 1-1 draw with Leicester City in September 2015.”He had a very tough start to life here, with a serious injury, but has come out the other side a better player and person for the experience he has been through,” said Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake.
