Love to keep him: Aston Villa fans lavish praise on Axel Tuanzebe

Axel Tuanzebe was in fine form for Aston Villa on Wednesday night as Dean Smith’s side recorded a 2-1 win at Rotherham United in the Championship.

Recently back from a foot injury, Tuanzebe starred in central defence and the on-loan Manchester United ace will be looking to inspire Villa to promotion this term.

It remains to be seen whether Villa can keep hold of the Englishman next season, with United in need of centre-backs of their own.

And surely Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be thinking about the 6 ft 1 ace.

The Villa fans are certainly enjoying watching the 21-year-old at the moment, though, and a number have taken to social media to hail the defender.

Tuanzebe’s return has come at a crucial time with Tyrone Mings now facing a suspension and James Chester still not ready to feature.
