Aston Villa are interested in re-signing Manchester United defender Axel Tuanzebe on loan next season according to The Birmingham Mail.
The 20-year-old central defender came through the ranks of the Manchester United academy and broke into the first team in 2017 under Jose Mourinho.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Aston Villa but he struggled with injuries and only made five appearances during his spell at the club.
With Aston Villa undergoing financial difficulty at the moment, Steve Bruce is keen to sign players on loan rather than sign players on a permanent deal for a fee.
With Tuanzebe unlikely to cement his place in the Manchester United team any time soon, an injury-free spell in the Championship would do him, and Aston Villa the world of good.
Villa fans have been reacting to the transfer news on social media and here’s a selection of some of their best comments.
Would do this and play him centre back or defensive centre midfield.

I like how people are complaining… He barely got a chance in the team due to injury, I think he started 2 games and came in as a sub once

Let’s use what we got build a team around or youngsters and not someone who don’t care about the club

He was injured and also played out of position last season . If his wages are covered then could be a great loanee considering our position

He was less than useless last season. Can’t see anything has changed!
