Axel Tuanzebe told Aston Villa’s official website earlier this week that he could make his return to action against Blackburn Rovers at the end of this month.
On the sidelines since the middle of December with a foot injury, it has been a frustrating period for the on-loan Manchester United centre-back.
It has not helped that Villa have had a number of injury problems at the back, but Tuanzebe is now almost ready to make his return for Dean Smith’s side.
The 21-year-old had been in fine form for Villa since picking up his foot injury and his return will boost a team desperately searching for a playoff spot this term.
As expected, the Villa fans were absolutely delighted with the fitness update on the England Under-21 international.
