Manchester United youngster Axel Tuanzebe set for Aston Villa loan as Steve Bruce's side push for promotion

  • Axel Tuanzebe has made two appearances for Manchester United this season
  • The 20-year-old won the under 21 Premier League with United on two occasions
  • Tuanzebe will join Steve Bruce's Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the season 

Axel Tuanzebe will join Aston Villa on loan from Manchester United for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old travelled with Jose Mourinho's squad for their mid-season training camp in Dubai, having appeared twice for United this season.

He was handed a rare appearance under Jose Mourinho in December's Champions League win over CSKA Moscow.

The defender made a very brief appearance in the 1-0 New Year's Day win at Everton – where he was substituted on in the last minute – but will join Steve Bruce's Villa in search of regular game time. 

Villa are fifth in the Championship and in the running for a spot in this year's playoffs at the very least as they sit just five points short of Derby in second.

The two-time under 21 Premier League winner is unlikely to play against Nottingham Forest, but could be available for a home debut against Barnsley next weekend.
