Aston Villa are delighted to announce Axel Tuanzebe has joined from Manchester United on loan until the end of the season.
Tuanzebe becomes our first signing of the January transfer window and will now train with the squad ahead of our Sky Bet Championship encounter with Sheffield United next week.
The 20-year-old is versatile and can play in defence and midfield.
Tuanzebe has been in the Red Devils academy since the age of eight and captained their U18s team as a first team scholar – the first to do that since Gary Neville.
After going on to impress for the U21s – again as skipper - he made his first team debut in the 4-0 win over Wigan in January 2017 – and has gone on to play in Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup matches for United over the past two seasons.
He told us: “I am delighted to be here.
“It’s an exciting time at this football club and everyone is pushing for promotion – that’s the big aim, you can feel that here.
“I am determined to help this club achieve its goal.”
