News broke this afternoon that Manchester United have allowed one of their young defenders go out on loan.

The BBC has confirmed that Axel Tuanzebe has dropped into the Championship to sign for promotion-chasing Aston Villa.

The 20-year-old centre-back has made eight appearances for Manchester United with the England U21 defender making his debut in the 4-0 FA Cup win, against Wigan Athletic in January 2017.

In moving to Aston Villa, for a loan spell, Tuanzebe will be joining up with a legendary Manchester United centre-back, Steve Bruce, who now manages the club.

Talking about making the move to Villa Park, Tuanzebe has remarked to the media,

‘We need to push for second place, I think we have a good enough squad.

‘I would like to help the team win promotion and check in with a few goals.

‘The lads here are good quality, a good passing side. They like to play it and that’s what intrigued me to come here.’


Here at Vital Manchester United we wish the youngster all the best whilst he`s away from Old Trafford.
