According to The Sun, Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe will remain on loan at Aston Villa for the 2018-19 campaign.
Tuanzebe joined Villa on loan from United in January, and the centre-back has made five Championship appearances since making the move to Villa Park.
An ankle problem has troubled the 20-year-old in recent weeks, but he has found it difficult to earn minutes in his favoured centre-back position.
There is no question that Tuanzebe is a fine talent though, and United are still believed to see him as a future first-team player for the Red Devils.
The Villa fans have been reacting to the news that the England Under-21 international could stay on loan for the 2018-19 campaign, and it would be fair to say that it is a bit of a mixed bag.
Indeed, there are some that have welcomed the transfer report, but there are also those that have not been impressed with the defender since his arrival.

All the negativity makes no sense, he's only played around 3 or 4 times and even then he has been out of position

First of all start playing him in his role….then we’ll see #AVFC

Problem is he wasn’t needed so he’s been shoe horned into the side to justify the loan so played out of position to his detriment….oh and been injured most times after he has played, maybe needed next year with JT and JC possibly not around

Good news, for me! I think we saw enough when he did play to be pleased he's staying! A real talent!

Was unreal away at Fulham

What a bummer. Haven’t been impressed with him at all. All hype and no go in him

Hasn't made quite the impact I expected, but he's been used sparingly so we'll see.
