Wesley Moraes

Tyrone Mings speaks positively about club’s new Brazilian striker

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has said that he has been amazed by the qualities of new signing Wesley Moraes. The Brazilian striker joined the Villains from Club Brugge at the beginning of the month and he has already made an impression with the west Midlands outfit during their ongoing pre-season campaign.

Moraes recently starred in the 5-1 friendly triumph over Walsall, where he scored a brace and speaking after that game, Mings acknowledged that the striker can be a handful with his height and physique, he told Sky Sports News: “He's a handful! He's a very strong guy, a very big guy, technically he's very good. I think he offers us something different and I think he'll add a lot to the team. He's a striker, a number 9, something which you don't see too much of these days. I may have given him a few 'Welcome to Aston Villa' tackles - but he gives as good as he gets!”
