Premier League newcomers Bournemouth have completed the signing of Ipswich full-back Tyrone Mings.

The 22-year-old, who joined Ipswich in 2012, has agreed a four-year deal with the Cherries and becomes the club's fifth summer signing.

Meanwhile, two Cherries players have departed for Portman Road.

Scottish winger Ryan Fraser, 21, has joined Ipswich on a season-long loan while Brett Pitman, 27, has moved on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said of Mings: "We are signing a player of huge potential.

"He fits the mould we are looking for - young, progressive, ambitious and wants to improve."
